Lilian Rugs : Name of rugs woven by Armenians in the village Lilian, in the Arak region of Western Iran. The Lilian rugs have a thick colourful pile. In their designs they often use floral geometric curvilinear motifs. The rugs are collected and sold in the markets of the city Hamadan.

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

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

Flat woven at one or both ends of the rug's width: In some rugs the nomads weave at fringes on a narrow Kilim one or both sides of the width, or they weave them artistically into small braids. It is a technique various weavers use for a greater durability or simply to demonstrate their skill. 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
