The city of Mood is located in the Khorasan province in Northeastern Iran. The manufacture of carpets and production of saffron made the city world-famous. Most Mood carpets are of high quality, made of thin, soft wool with fine and shapely designs. Mood carpets are woven with an asymmetrical knot. Bright blue and red with beige for contrast are usually used. In their designs flowers and medallions are typically used. The artisans often weave the Mir design and the design called the garden (i.e., repeated squares decorated with trees, weeping willows, flowers, deer and birds).
