Ahar Rugs : Ahar Rugs: Similar to Heriz rugs from the neighbouring town of Ahar, also sold under the name Heriz, Sarab, Bakhshaish and Goravan.

Sirjan Rugs : Sirjan persian rugs have geometric designs usually consist of a single medallion that is repeated vertically in the center of the rug. Dominant colours are red, burgundy, pale blue and beige.

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.

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
