Afshar Rugs : In Southeastern Iran, around the town of Kerman, live the people of the Afshar race. Their rugs are considered to be among the best examples of nomadic weaving. The primitive and beautiful designs in geometric shapes, usually in blue and red colour are unique. Afshar rugs and carpets are also known in the market under the name Sirdjan. The city Sirdjan is a collection point for the Afshar carpets and is located in the southwest of Kerman province.

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.

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
