Songhor Carpets : The Songhor rugs have high quality wool and herbal colours. The large designs are impressive with the primary colour being red and shades of it.

Koliai Carpets : The rugs Koliai have taken their name from the nomadic tribe of the same name. Koliai nomads live in villages southeast of the city Senneh. The carpets are durable with a thick pile. Herbal colours give shine to the very goodquality wool. The large designs are impressive with the primary colour being red and shades of it.

Nomadic carpets with designs influenced by urban carpets: They are carpets woven by nomads who for the past few years had been living in villages. The carpets are woven in the nomadic style of weaving, but their designs are nowadays influenced by urban carpets. Due to the nomadic style of weaving carpets are sometimes uneven in shape.

Horizontal or vertical shading in the carpet pile: The shading is due to folding the carpet during transportation. When the carpet 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 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
