Kilim Sumak Carpets : The Soumak is woven in herringbone design. In Soumak wool and silk threads are used so we have wool, silk, and the wool-silk Soumak. The Sumak kilims are woven throughout the East, but mainly in the Caucasus, in the area situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The name comes from the city Shamakhi, the commercial centre and the capital of the province of Shirva.

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.

Kilim: It is a type of textile without a pile, that preceded the carpet with a pile and it is mainly made by nomads. It has often got no back or front surface and it can be used on both sides.

Flat woven at one or both ends of the carpet's width: In some carpets the nomads weave at fringes on a narrow Kilim one or both sides of the width, or they weave them artistically into small braids. It is a technique various weavers use for a greater durability or simply to demonstrate their skill. Examples
