Generally, the Khal Mohammad is considered one of the warmer rugs as they are dyed an unforgettable deep red, and painstakingly decorated with elaborate dark blue or black patterned detail. The pattern is an adaptation of the designs which weavers of Turkmen, or Ersari, origin once used, and this design is continuously repeated in columns across the entire rug. These adapted patterns were once quite large but over the years they have grown smaller and smaller, and are today no more than a few inches in diameter. As the patterns have been downscaled, so has the range of colours used which is why today most rugs have only 2 distinct colours. Regardless of the changes, the Afghan rugs remain appealing to many Persian rug collectors.
