Kilim Fars: The kilim Fars are famous for the variety of their motifs. In this category also belong textiles of various applications, such as saltbags, horsebags, cushions etc. They are being woven by the Nomads in Persia. The most famous Persian kilims are Sumak, Senneh, Fars and Qashqai.

Qashqai: Qashqai rugs are woven by nomads who live in the mountainous areas of Southwest Persia, the provinces of Fars, Khuzestan, south of Isfahan and around the city Shiraz. Their rugs have a high knot density and a wide variety of designs, usually in deep red and blue colours. They weave rugs, Kilims and decorative textiles (ribbons, bags, etc.), which depict scenes from their lives with various representation of humans, animals, birds, trees and flowers.

Kilim: It is a type of textile without a pile, that preceded the rug with a pile and it is mainly made by nomads. It has often got no back or front surface and it can be used on both sides.

Horizontal or vertical shading in the rug pile: The shading is due to folding the rug during transportation. When the rug 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 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
