Bijar Rugs : The Bijar rugs have taken their name from the homonymous small Kurdish town Bijar that is located in Western Iran. The Bijar are very high quality rugs and their name implies toughness and durability. They are thick tight-woven rugs with double knots and excellent quality wool. The most famous design is called Herati-mahi (mahi = fish). Another typical design is a central medallion and flowers.

Kurdi Rugs : Kurdistan is a mountainous area south of Azerbaijan. The area has been inhabited since ancient times by Kurdish nomads and seminomads, who live on the western border of Persia as farmers and produce the best wool in the country. The area is avery active centre of rug weaving. Wonderful rugs are woven there, with geometric designs rhombi, medallions, little ornaments and the well-known designs Herati, Mina-Khani. The background colours of the Kurdi rugs and rugs is usually dark blue or deep red.

Nomadic rugs with designs influenced by urban rugs: They are rugs woven by nomads who for the past few years had been living in villages. The rugs are woven in the nomadic style of weaving, but their designs are nowadays influenced by urban rugs. Due to the nomadic style of weaving rugs are sometimes uneven in shape.

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
