As a result, the quality of the carpet wears down and the demand for chemical carpeting and inadequate raw materials reduced.
Today, with the change in the production process and the reuse of plant colors and high quality materials, these carpets are back to good quality back in time.
Moud carpets are no longer just woven in the village and its texture is found in several villages and towns, all known as Mood Carpets.
The reason for the high quality of Moud carpet is that in the past was that weaving was done by hand and dyeing these wool strands also done manually by one person.
For this reason, color and texture had a very high harmony.
