Kerman Carpets : Carpet weaving, an old tradition in Kerman, is one of the main industries of the city. The carpets produced in the city are renowned internationally. The oldest carpet discovered in Kerman dates back 500 years, demonstrating the durabillity and quality of the carpets woven there. Also manufactured as in older times are other textile products made of cotton or wool, like shawls and delicate fabrics. When in 1271 Marko Polo visited the city it became a trade centre that connected the Persian Gulf with Khorasan and Central Asia. During the Safavid dynasty, carpets were exported to England and Germany. Characteristic of Kerman carpets are the bright colors and the plentiness of beautiful flowers with garlands and medallions. The wool in Kerman is of very good quality with greasiness which makes it very bright.

Lavar Carpets : Lavar rugs are known around the world and have found their place in many homes. Lavar rugs were produced in Ravar village next to Kerman city in the northern region, and are known particularly for their fine weave and elegant, classically derived design of allover and central medallion formats.

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

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
