Varamin Carpets : Varamin is the capital of Varamin county, which lies south of the Persian capital Tehran. The carpets Varamin have geometric patterns with repeating medallions found especially in corridors. Many of the carpets are made by Varamin nomads who either live in or pass cross Varamin. The colors used in Varamin carpets are dark brown and dark red in a khaki or blue background. Their wool is soft and dense and the weave is tight. The carpets woven in the villages near Varamin use primarily the asymmetric (Persian) knot, whereas the nomads, depending on their ethnicity, use the asymmetric and the symmetric (Turkish) knot. The warp and weft are mainly cotton.

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
