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).

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
