Varamin Carpets : Varamin is the capital of Varamin county, which lies south of the Persian capital Tehran. The carpets Varamin have geometric patterns with repeating medallions found especially in corridors. Many of the carpets are made by Varamin nomads who either live in or pass cross Varamin. The colors used in Varamin carpets are dark brown and dark red in a khaki or blue background. Their wool is soft and dense and the weave is tight. The carpets woven in the villages near Varamin use primarily the asymmetric (Persian) knot, whereas the nomads, depending on their ethnicity, use the asymmetric and the symmetric (Turkish) knot. The warp and weft are mainly cotton.

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
