Lori Carpets : Carpets woven by the Lurs, a nomadic tribe in the mountainous Kurdish region of Southwest Iran, bordering Iraq. The Lori carpets usually have geometric shapes, often with rhombi and strictly linear scenes of the herbal and animal world. Because the areas where the Lurs live are inaccessible and isolated, they still weave with the old traditional ways, without influences from the Europeans. The centre of Luristan is Choremabad, which gave its name to the carpets woven there. Furthermore carpets have been named after the salt lake Neris.

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.

All CarpetU2 carpets are subject to cleaning with high quality antibacterial and moth protection products according to Persian law.

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
