Saddle Bag Carpets : ​Horse saddle bags are made by Nomads for their own use. One can distinguish between the kilim-horse saddle bags and the knotted horse saddle bags. The front side of a knotted horse saddle bag is either knotted like a common carpet with knots or different mixed techniques are used. The side parts are often woven whereas in the middle part different weaving techniques such as kelim or Soumak are applied. The colors horse bags are dyed with are all natural and made by the Nomads themselves. Bags like these once carried everyday necessities for travelers on donkeys or horses. A delightful piece of art that provides a unique oriental atmosphere to your home. Horse saddle bags can be used as a seat cushion, as a floor cushion eg in front of your fireplace or as a wall decoration. Smaller horse saddle bags can be used as a newspaper holder to store newspapers or magazines when slung over a chair or sofa.

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
