Qum Carpets : Qum or Ghom is an Iranian city that is regarded as holy by the Shiites. The weaving of Qum rugs began on a large scale in the 1930's and they have experimented with various designs of old carpets such as Senna, Kashan, Isfahan and other renowned Persian carpets. A new generation of designers created new designs with rare colours for Persian carpets, like light green and turquoise-blue. This way Qum silk rugs developed an original character of their own. Among the many famous projectsis the Garden: a design with several repeated blocks, within which are depicted flowers or animals (images of birds, winged lions, and dragons), old Persian hunting representations or various historical scenes. Prayer carpets with various religious themes are also well known. The rugs have a high knot density and high class materials. Silk and fine quality wool establish them as very high quality carpets.

Classic Carpets: Carpets that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by carpet designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these carpets, though there may be slight variations in weaving.

Horizontal or vertical shading in the carpet pile: The shading is due to folding the carpet during transportation. When the carpet is laid and stepped-on they will vanish. Examples

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 carpet. 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 carpets. Examples
