Heriz Carpets : Heriz is located in Northwestern Iran, in Azerbaijan northeast of Tabriz. Extremely durable carpets with the same name are woven here, on the slopes of Mount Sabalan. The new Heriz rugs are thicker and very tightly woven. These rugs become more and more beautiful as they age. In the area high quality and very durable wool is produced, because the sheep's drinking water contains traces of copper which is found in Mount Sabalan. The carpets are often woven with geometric designs and a large medallion that dominates the centre. The designs are traditional and they are woven from memory. Black and red herbal colors are the most common. Similar carpets from neighbouring towns and villages such as Ahar, Mehraban, Sarab, Bakhshaish and Goravan are sold under the name Heriz but should not be comfused with the Heriz rugs.

Azari Carpets : The carpets Azari are often woven with geometric designs and a large medallion that dominates the centre. The designs are traditional and they are woven from memory. Black and red herbal colors are the most common.

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.

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
