Bakhtiari Carpets : In the mountains Zagros, west of the city of Isfahan, around the town of Shahr-e-Kurd, live the nomads Bakhtiar. Their carpets are known for the design with various repeating squares in which flowers and animals are depicted. For this reason the design is called "garden"(Khesti). Their carpets are very durable with a dense weave and very good quality Persian wool coming from sheep grazing at a high altitude. The best Bakhtiar rugs and carpets with highest knot density are often called Bibibaff. Also in many designs we see influences from Isfahan carpets. (Boldaji - Feridan - Saman).

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.

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
