Gabbeh Carpets : Gabbeh in Farsi means natural, primitive. Carpets and textiles with this name are woven by the nomads Qashqai who roam about, or in villages in Southwestern Iran where they live. The yarns are processed and twisted by hand, painted with herbal colors and woven with a wool warp up to 2 cm thick. These carpets are simple, with few designs, or monochrome. The simple, linear designs with animals and human figures give them a contemporary look. Various names are given to Gabbeh carpets such as Basic, Amalehbaft, Kashkooli, Luribaft and Sumak. Gabbeh Kashkooli is a carpet with high knot density and thinner than ordinary Persian Gabbeh carpets. The Persian Gabbeh is very durable and its quality is very good.

Qashqai Carpets : Qashqai carpets are woven by nomads who live in the mountainous areas of Southwest Persia, the provinces of Fars, Khuzestan, south of Isfahan and around the city Shiraz. Their carpets have a high knot density and a wide variety of designs, usually in deep red and blue colors. They weave carpets, Kilims and decorative textiles (ribbons, bags, etc.), which depict scenes from their lives with various representation of humans, animals, birds, trees and flowers. They also depict historical monuments, mostly from Persepolis.

Nomadic carpets: Carpets woven by nomads. Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region. They manufacture (weave) handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and their carpets are sometimes uneven in shape. Also the weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. As a result, the designs in some carpets are not even on the entire surface.

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
