Kashmar Carpets : The city of Kashmar is located in the Khorasan province southwest of the city Mashad in Eastern Iran. It has a very rich history and its old name is Torshiz. Exquisite high quality carpets have been woven for centuries there. The carpets are woven thick, with fine soft wool in beautiful blue colors in contrast with cream and ivory beige. In newer carpets they use soft green, red and brown. Characteristic of Kashmar carpets are the large sizes and the unique designs that look like paintings with trees, flowers and domes of mosques. Also depicted are representations that recount historical events, major incidents from Persian history or a historically known person or the story of a revered Persian king. In Kashmar they weave elegant masterpieces of color harmony, complexity of designs in detail, to show the Persian love of beauty and art. Kashmar rugs and carpets are durable and grow more beautiful with time.

old Carpets : In older carpets there may be little wear.

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.

All CarpetU2 carpets are subject to cleaning with high quality antibacterial and moth protection products according to Persian law.

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
