Moud (or Maud) is located in eastern Iran. Moud rugs are designed both with and without a medallion; this is called a Herati pattern. Moud rugs are made of high-quality wool, often with silk accents that seem to light up, on a cotton warp. Moud rugs often have a silky shine.
Moud rugs are excellent for regular use and have a high durability.
