Tuyserkan Carpets : The city of Tuyserkan is located 10 km south of Hamadan in a fabulous valley in the Alvand mountains. In all the villages of the city they weave beautiful carpets which get the name Tuyserkan. They are of very good quality and carefully woven. Typical pattern of Tuyserkan carpets is a zig-zag line along the border that is reminiscent of Malayer carpets. The centre useally has a single large rhombus. Their colors are usually Indigo blue and beige. The quality of the wool which is dyed with herbal colors is excellent and with a special glow.

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 with designs influenced by urban carpets: They are carpets woven by nomads who for the past few years had been living in villages. The carpets are woven in the nomadic style of weaving, but their designs are nowadays influenced by urban carpets. Due to the nomadic style of weaving carpets are sometimes uneven in shape.

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

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
