Enjelas Rugs : The small town Enjelas is located 15 km south of Hamadan. The rugs woven here have the same name and are dense and very durable. The excellent quality of the wool they use is painted with natural colours that give the rugs a natural glow. The main colours used in rugs Enjelas are deep red with a complementary dark blue or vice versa, with a third colour being the unpainted natural beige of the animal, which is used mainly in the borders and less in the rest of the area.

Hamadan Rugs : The city of Hamadan is situated in the Northwestern part of Iran, 300 kilometres west of Tehran. Many of the rugs are sold under their own names, such as Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer, Hosseinabad, Burchalow, Enjilas, Lilihan, Khamse and Zanjan. The simplest rugs of the area are sold under the name of Hamadan. Each village has got its own style in weaving rugs with their own designs and colours. In most Hamadan rugs and rugs they use high quality wool and a variety of colours.The colours are herbal and various shades of blue indigo and shades of red dominate the rug.

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

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
