Kelardasht Carpets : The village Kelardasht is located in Northern Iran, south of the Caspian Sea, near the mountains Alborz. In Kelardasht wonderful carpets are woven. The design of Kelardasht rugs and carpets is usually composed of a hexagon or an octagon, sometimes supplemented by depicting a scarab in the middle. In the central part of the carpet, there are simple, linear ornaments as well as flowers. The colours of these carpets are herbal and are often deep red with dark blue-black and brown dominate the carpets. The pile is woven with thick, soft wool and the warp is made of cotton. These carpets are very durable.

Kurdi Carpets : 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 carpet weaving. Wonderful carpets 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 carpets is usually dark blue or deep red.

Nomadic carpets: Carpets woven by nomads. Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region. They manufacture (weave) handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and their carpets 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 carpets 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 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
