Buyer please note : Rug have some ABRASH.
What is the abrash: Anyone who looks closely at the photographs of rugs in this web site will notice that, in many of them, colors change in horizontal bands throughout the rugs. A band of darker red, for instance, may lie between larger areas of lighter red. That kind of color-variation is called abrash. Most often abrash is caused by variation in dyelots and is most often encountered when rugs are woven in relatively primitive conditions where each dyelot may consist of only 20 or 30 gallons- as opposed to dye mixed in cities that may consist of 500 or 1000 gallon batches. But there are other causes of abrash as well. There can be large differences in the kind and the natural color of wool used in one rug, and each wool absorbs dye a little differently. Also, when wool is spun by hand, the tension of the spin varies and consequently so does the capacity of the wool to absorb dye. That band of darker blue that we cited above may result from a batch of loosely spun wool that absorbed a lot of dye.
Is abrash a flaw? The answer lies in the eyes of the beholder. Germans, by and large, don’t like abrash. Other people enjoy the character that abrash seems to add to oriental rugs. We would like to suggest that strong abrash is not appropriate to finely knotted rugs and carpets made in city workshop conditions—rugs like Kashans and Nains that seem to aim for a kind of perfection. On the other hand, in tribal and village rugs, abrash often looks good and is by no means a flaw. But you, the connoisseur, are the final judge. less
