ABRASH, Colour variations in oriental Carpets and Rugs.
Antique, hand knotted Oriental Rugs were woven from multiple dye lots during their creation. As one dye lot was replaced by another there were often variations in the colour causing what is known as ” Abrash “
These variations were not immediately noticable by the weaver, but became more apparent with the passing of time, giving the Carpet or Rug a unique character.
