Isfahan Rugs : In the centre of Iran among the Zagros Mountains and the desert, lies the city of Isfahan. Nowadays it is an important industrial city with a population of 1.2 million. The town is an architectural masterpiece. The old rugs of Isfahan incontrast with the newer ones didn't have got a central medallion. The entire surface of the rug was filled with elaborate spiral flowers and flower palmettes. The newer Isfahan rugs cannot be compared with those wonderful old specimens which were manufactured exclusively for nobles. But continuing the tradition, today's rugs of Isfahan also have a very fine weave and are clipped very short to reveal their design more clearly. In the weaving they also use silk to highlight certain areas of the design, especially in flowers. The warp is made of silk or cotton.

Classic rugs: Rugs that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by rug designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these rugs, though there may be slight variations in weaving.
