Sarouk Carpets : Sarouk is the name of carpets with a rich history, which are woven in the homonymous town as well as in the city of Arak and surrounding areas. Names of carpets from the Sarouk area are also: Feraghan, Feraghan Sarouk, Mahal, Mohajaran Sarouk, Mushkabad and Viss / Golpayegan. The first successes of Sarouk carpets were largely due to the U.S. market. The Sarouk still continue to be popular among Persian carpets and are made of very good quality wool. The designs are usually floral in style, in ivory beige and in shades of red and blue. The best Sarouk originate from the small town Ghiassabad.

Farahan Carpets : The area Farahan is located in Central Iran, about 580 km south of Tehran between the cities Arak, Qum and Kashan. This area has got a long history in the carpet industry and from the 19th Century it has made large exports to Europe. Nowadays, in Western countries Farahan carpets are also known as Mahal. These carpets have solid construction and fine designs. To create them mineral colors are used that give a copper-rust green color. Woven in Sarou they are among the most famous carpets in the area. They often have got a blue background in the pile, with repeating Herati designs and a medallion that is surrounded by roses and other flowers with delicate lines in a variety of colors. Their wool is soft and of very good quality, which allows for a very fine and tight weave.

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.

Flat woven at one or both ends of the carpet's width: In some carpets the nomads weave at fringes on a narrow Kilim one or both sides of the width, or they weave them artistically into small braids. It is a technique various weavers use for a greater durability or simply to demonstrate their skill. 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
