Sarouk Carpets : Sarouk is the name of carpets with a rich history, which are woven in the homonymous town as well as in the city of Arak and surrounding areas. Names of carpets from the Sarouk area are also: Feraghan, Feraghan Sarouk, Mahal, Mohajaran Sarouk, Mushkabad and Viss / Golpayegan. The first successes of Sarouk rugs and carpets 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.

Farahan Carpets : The area Farahan is located in Central Iran, about 580 km south of Tehran between the cities Arak, Qum and Kashan. Nowadays, in Western countries Farahan rugs are also known as Mahal. These rugs have solid construction and fine designs. To create them mineral colours are used that give a copper-rust green colour. They often have got a blue background in the pile, with repeating Herati designs and a medallion that is surrounded by roses and other flowers with delicate lines in a variety of colours. Their wool is soft and of very good quality, which allows for a very fine and tight weave.

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
