Oriental Rugs Glossary
<< Back to Glossary List
Moud is located in East Persia and belongs to the region of Birjand. Mouds are the most valuable works of this highly significant carpet region. Mostly Moud rugs are made of finer and softer wool than other Persian rugs and therefore allow them to have more dense and subtle designs and patterns. They are mostly woven with the Persian knot as opposed to the Turkish knot with which most Persian rugs are made.
