What we in the industry refer to as “Mood Carpets” are a generalization of a number of types of rugs woven in NE Persia. These pieces are generally formal in design, and are considered to be sort of a sister rug to the Tabriz.
One type of weave considered as such is the Doroksh. Typically, the pattern on Doroksh carpets can be viewed in as much detail on the back of the rug as on the face.
One result of the intricacy of these weavings was the method of cheating by using a weft every few lines, instead of every line (like most Persian rugs). Perhaps the weavers were trying to save time by doing this. The effect that this creates once the rug has worn some is quite unusual, with a striated look and a feeling much like a frayed piece of fabric.
