Ardebil Carpets : Among the most famous carpets in the world, they have taken their name from the homonymous town of Ardebil, which is located near the Caspian Sea, in Northwestern Persia. A highlight of the carpet collection that is found in the Victoria and Albert Museum is an Ardebil. It is the only one of the very few preserved old carpets on which the date 1539, according to our calendar, (946 Persian date) is shown in the weave. The first Ardebil carpets with designs of flowers and various medallions are simple, without symbols and resemble carpets from the city of Tabriz. The newer Ardebil carpets are very different from the old ones. The designs have influences from old Caucasian carpets, mainly geometric designs from the carpets Sirvan and Karabah.

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
