Saddle Bag Rugs : ​Horse saddle bags are made by Nomads for their own use. One can distinguish between the kilim-horse saddle bags and the knotted horse saddle bags. The front side of a knotted horse saddle bag is either knotted like a common rug with knots or different mixed techniques are used. The colours horse bags are dyed with are all natural and made by the Nomads themselves. Bags like these once carried everyday necessities for travelers on donkeys or horses. A delightful piece of art that provides a unique oriental atmosphere to your home. Horse saddle bags can be used as a seat cushion, as a floor cushion eg in front of your fireplace or as a wall decoration. Smaller horse saddle bags can be used as a newspaper holder to store newspapers or magazines when slung over a chair or sofa.

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.

Flat woven at one or both ends of the rug's width: In some rugs the nomads weave at fringes on a narrow Kilim one or both sides of the width, or they weave them artistically into small braids. It is a technique various weavers use for a greater durability or simply to demonstrate their skill. 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
