Sarouk Rugs : Sarouk is the name of rugs with a rich history, which are woven in the homonymous town as well as in the city of Arak and surrounding areas. Names of rugs from the Sarouk area are also: Feraghan, Feraghan Sarouk, Mahal, Mohajaran Sarouk, Mushkabad and Viss / Golpayegan. The first successes of Sarouk rugs and rugs were largely due to the U.S. market. The Sarouk still continue to be popular among Persian rugs and are made of very good quality wool. The designs are usually floral in style, in ivory beige and in shades of red and blue.

old Rugs : In older rugs there may be little wear.

Nomadic rugs: Rugs woven by nomads. Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region. They manufacture (weave) handmade rugs on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and their rugs are sometimes uneven in shape. Also the weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. As a result, the designs in some rugs are not even on the entire surface.

Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the rug. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the rugs. Examples
