The old Mashad rugs were very good and had fine weave. For a time, due to the high manufacturing cost, quality did not meet the requirements of buyers and the demand had declined significantly. This happened until the mid-1950, when a significant improvement began. Their rugs started to look like works of art, with beautiful, tasteful, fine and detailed drawings. A great variety of flowers, "mir I botah", beautiful medallions and borders with garlands adorn Mashad rugs. The colours are almost always herbal. In Chorasan there are many krapprot which give a very sweet red.The Indigo blue is also the second of the main colours used. The knots used are senneh (Persian knot) and ghiordes (Turkish knot). The Mashad rugs called Turkbafs, in which the ghiordes knot is used, are of very high quality and aesthetics.
