When we talk about mosque carpet, we mean machine-woven carpets, because handmade rugs are much less available and due to their high price, few people can afford it for the mosque and prayer hall. Due to the cheaper price and mass production of machine woven carpets in various designs and colors, most buyers prefer these carpets for mosque.
In this article, we want to discuss the use of masjid carpet roll instead of classic carpet in the mosque; In the following, we will acquaint you with the features of machine-woven mosque carpet; Before continuing the article, watch a video of different types of prayer carpet roll designs:
Industrial fibers in masjid carpet roll
Unlike handmade carpets, synthetic fibers are used in all types of machine-woven carpets. Synthetic fibers are man-made and are created by chemical processes. It is true that the quality of natural fibers is not comparable to synthetic fibers, but due to the lower price of synthetic fibers, it can be said that they have left an acceptable quality.
For high quality masjid carpet roll weaving, heat set acrylic fibers are used, which are the best fibers available in the industry for use in machine-woven carpets. Therefore, these types of carpets have the necessary and appropriate quality for the mosque.
Variety of reeds, designs and colors
One of the terms used for machine-woven carpets is the number of reeds. The maximum number of reeds produced by machine-woven carpets is currently 1,500 reeds, but rugs with 700 and 500 reeds are now used in mosque carpet rolls.
Another prominent feature of machine-woven carpets is that due to the use of computer designs and synthetic fibers, the weaving machine has no restrictions on applying color and pattern, and therefore the design and color of these carpets is very diverse.
Suitable color for the masjid
Classic carpets generally do not have the right color for the mosque and you have to search a lot to find a suitable color for the masjid. Also, the designs on classic carpets are common and are the same designs that are used in homes.
But in the masjid carpet roll, this is completely different. All prayer carpet rolls are designed to be suitable for mosque and prayer hall, and colors such as blue, green, and red are used, which is suitable for the mosque and musalla.
Also, the designs of most mosque carpet roll, instead of flowers, branches and plants that are seen in ordinary carpets, are the designs and patterns of mihrabs, domes, columns, minarets and gilding, which are taken from Islamic architecture. These designs are such that they are placed towards the qibla, and the repetition of the designs also determines the position of each person of worship, and thus the order of the rows will be observed.
Since the designs are Islamic, it is exactly in line with the architecture that has been used in the design of the mosque, and this creates a harmony in the eyes of people that will definitely have a beneficial effect on his comfort.
