Afshar Carpets : In Southeastern Iran, around the town of Kerman, live the people of the Afshar race. Their carpets are considered to be among the best examples of nomadic weaving. The primitive and beautiful designs in geometric shapes, usually in blue and red color are unique. Afshar carpets are also known in the market under the name Sirdjan. The city Sirdjan is a collection point for the Afshar carpets and is located in the southwest of Kerman province.

Sirjan Carpets : Sirjan carpets have geometric designs usually consist of a single medallion that is repeated vertically in the center of the carpet. Dominant colors are red, burgundy, pale blue and beige.

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.

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
