Koliai Carpets : The carpets Koliai have taken their name from the nomadic tribe of the same name. Koliai nomads live in villages southeast of the city Senneh. The carpets are durable with a thick pile. Herbal colors give shine to the very good quality wool. The large designs are impressive with the primary color being red and shades of it.

Kurdi Carpets : Kurdistan is a mountainous area south of Azerbaijan. The area has been inhabited since ancient times by Kurdish nomads and seminomads, who live on the western border of Persia as farmers and produce the best wool in the country. The area is avery active centre of carpet weaving. Wonderful carpets are woven there, with geometric designs rhombi, medallions, little ornaments and the well-known designs Herati, Mina-Khani. The background colors of the Kurdi carpets is usually dark blue or deepred.

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
