Joshaghan Carpets : Joshaghan is a town located in central Iran, north of Isfahan city and very close to the town of Kashan. Characteristic designs of the Joshaghan carpets are Rhombi. Also characteristic are the repetitive designs of flowers "mina khani", henna flowers, or even pomegranate trees. On the borders there are perimetrically woven meanders. Red is the dominant color used on a blue or beige background. The best carpets are from the Joshaghan and are called Muchakar or Murcecar and Meymeh.

Isfahan Carpets : In the centre of Iran among the Zagros Mountains and the desert, lies the city of Isfahan. Nowadays it is an important industrial city with a population of 1.2 million. The town is an architectural masterpiece. The old carpets of Isfahan in contrast with the newer ones didn't have got a central medallion. The entire surface of the carpet was filled with elaborate spiral flowers and flower palmettes. The newer Isfahan rugs and carpets cannot be compared with those wonderful old specimens which were manufactured exclusively for nobles. But continuing the tradition, today's carpets of Isfahan also have a very fine weave and are clipped very short to reveal their design more clearly. In the weaving they also use silk to highlight certain areas of the design, especially in flowers. The warp is made of silk or 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.

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
