Hosseinabad Carpets : The name of carpets woven in the village of Hosseinabad that is located in Northwestern Persia. The Hosseinabad carpets are thick in the pile and tightly woven. Their usual design is called Herati which is also found in Farahancarpets.

Hamadan Carpets : The city of Hamadan is situated in the Northwestern part of Iran, 300 kilometres west of Tehran. Many of the carpets are sold under their own names, such as Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer, Hosseinabad, Burchalow, Enjilas, Lilihan, Khamse and Zanjan. The simplest carpets of the area are sold under the name of Hamadan. Each village has got its own style in weaving carpets with their own designs and colours. In most Hamadan rugs and carpets 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 carpet.

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
