The carpets from Moud, a city in east Iran, often have a Herati pattern, with or without a centrally placed medallion. They are sometimes divided into Moud Mahi and Moud Garden. The first one mentioned, Mahi, often has a beige color with a light red or blue nuance and a star-shaped medallion. The other, Garden, reminds one about Bakhtiari carpets, illustrated with a curvilinear garden motif. Well respected, Moud rugs are among the most beautiful and detailed Persian carpets. They have the unique characteristic for a carpet that has a busy pattern of making a room appear bigger by giving it more depth.
Always use a professional rug cleaners. Self-cleaning methods like carpet shampooing are discouraged.
Clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean sponge or cloth.
Avoid use of beater-bar type vacuum as they create friction, which speeds up the wear on pile rugs, and some may cause yarns to pull or snag. If snagging does occur, trim to same level of surrounding fibers.
Care and Maintenance
We recommend rug pads for use with all rugs to help extend the rug’s life, protect the surface underneath, and help keep rug in place.
Pile shedding is a normal characteristic of quality area rugs, particularly with wool and other natural fibers. Some rugs shed more than others.
