Joshaghan Carpets : Joshaghan is a town located in central Iran, north of Isfahan city and very close to the town of Kashan. Characteristic designs of the Joshaghan carpets are Rhombi. Also characteristic are the repetitive designs of flowers "mina khani", henna flowers, or even pomegranate trees. On the borders there are perimetrically woven meanders. Red is the dominant color used on a blue or beige background. The best carpets are from the Joshaghan and are called Muchakar or Murcecar and Meymeh.

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
