I think you are looking at the sun on that is shining on the rug. We are living in smoke due to all the fires and the sun is very yellow/orange today.

Get some 2" Electrical underground pipe, 10', it's grey, roll the rug around that and tie up. Get a couple of used office chairs (5 wheeled) buy some roller skate wheels for office chairs. It's what we use. With the chairs you only have to lift heavy rugs one side at a time plus you're half way up to Van height too.

Where did you get the dusting grates?
I bought the red ones from Dan (may he RIP). The black ones I ordered from amazon. I found a place in town that sells them for the same price as Amazon. I need 6 more to fit this rug. I also need to move and expand my rug pit to fit this monster. Also I need another sump pump for the pit and tile squares.

Once its wet, it stays where its at until dry. I won’t be able to move this thing.

Oh man, these Mashad rugs are expensive!

I'm sure you can get one for much less in California.
The urine and color run has also decreased its value.
My Iranian friend brought some rugs from Iran and tried to sell them and failed.
Californians seem to prefer contemporary cheap gunned or expensive Stark rugs.

It's a dated look in a new home. If it had to be traditional design I'd want it washed to where it's the white and blues.

Reds, blacks, greens look like old peoples rugs.

Reminds me of one of my Iranian customers. They have all sorts of beautiful Persian rugs. The last time I picked up a bunch from them, they couldn't care less about how I would treat them but the woman was asking, "do you know how to clean a Natuzzi rug?" Turns out the Natuzzi rug is just a polyester shag. Yeah, I think I can clean that.
