These carpets are often singular variations that may appear, depending on your point of view, either as a default or as a quality, but is anyway a strange characteristic: the color of certain motifs or the background sometimes varies from one place to another, and it may even change completely. This change of color, called "abrash" occurs mainly in carpets of old manufacture. The presence of "abrash" proves that the carpet was spun and dyed by hand. Indeed, it is difficult when dyed by craftsmen, to find the same color in two successive dye baths.
