Mashhad, the capital of the Khorasan is the largest weaving centre in north east of Iran. In Mashhad there is a tradition of weaving in the style of Kerman or Yazd.
Mashhad has the reputation of not being very hard wearing, owing to the weakening of the yarn in the dyeing process. Mashhad carpets belong to the middle category, but some interesting carpets are found.
Typical designs of Mashhad carpets are Shah-Abbasi Medallion Arabesque and HarMi. The dominant colours are red and brown.
Many of Mashhad carpets bear the weaver's signature.
Some of them are Amoghil, Saber, Shesh-Kalani, Zarrineh, and Kafi.
