Why does my rug look like the color has changed after being professionally cleaned?

Solutions provided:

Explanation of abrash.
What is abrash? Is it a bad thing? Abrash is used to denote color changes or striations running horizontally across the face of a rug. Abrash can also refer to a general variation of color throughout a certain field of color, causing the area to have a mottled appearance.
Occasionally abrash may appear more apparent following a professional cleaning. Sometimes true colors are obscured by soiling. The variations were pre-existing, but have long been forgotten.
Abrash is often prized as a beautiful characteristic of an oriental or hand knotted rug.
Is it intentional in the dye process, or by the weaver? Abrash only adds to the mystique of oriental rugs.
