Enjelas Carpets : The small town Enjelas is located 15 km south of Hamadan. The carpets woven here have the same name and are dense and very durable. The most common design is called the "Herati" and is woven border to border repeatedly, rarely with a central medallion. The excellent quality of the wool they use is painted with natural colors that give the carpets a natural glow. The main colors used in Enjelas rugs are deep red with a complementary dark blue or vice versa, with a third color beingthe unpainted natural beige of the animal, which is used mainly in the borders and less in the rest of the area.

Hamadan Carpets : The city of Hamadan is situated in the Northwestern part of Iran, 300 kilometres west of Tehran. It is one of the oldest cities in the world and is referred to in the Bible with the name Ekvatana. The city is a gathering place and trade centre for the carpets woven in hundreds of nearby villages and towns. Many of the carpets are sold under their own names, such as Nahavand, Tuiserkan, Malayer, Hosseinabad, Burchalow, Enjilas, Lilihan, Khamse and Zanjan. The simplest carpets of the area are sold under the name of Hamadan. Each village has got its own style in weaving carpets with their own designs and colors. In most Hamadan carpets they use high quality wool and a variety of colors. The colors are herbal and various shades of blue indigo and shades of red dominate the carpet.

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

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

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
