Heriz Abrash!!! 11.6 x 8.4 feet
3.55 x 2.56 meter Abrash is a term used to describe color variations in a hand knotted Oriental rug, especially one that is weaved under nomadic or tribal conditions.
What Causes Abrash in Oriental Rugs?
Several factors account for abrash. One is intentional and specific to religion and culture. Others are not intentional, but are particular to the nomadic life style.
In nomadic culture, there is a strongly ingrained idea about man’s imperfection and proneness to errors, as opposed to Allah’s (G-d’s) perfection and omnipotence. It is common for intentional mistakes to be weaved into area rugs, as this is a way to hint at G-d’s superiority over man.
Wool Spinning Process
Weavers in small tribal villages have limited resources. Thus, not only are the dyes mixed in small batches, but also the wool is hand-spun in small quantities weeks or months apart, allowing for variations in the spinning and dying processes. Moreover, the source and quality of the wool are often inconsistent, so dyes are absorbed differently, creating variable pigmentation in the hand woven rug. #styleitdark #interiorlovers #newinteriorsontheblock #architecture #inspire_me_home_decor #heritage #classic #vintagehome #vintageinterior #
