Beshir Carpets : Beshir is small town in Western Turkmenistan. The carpets woven here belong to the group of Bokhara. Carpets that are woven along the Amu Darya River in Northern Afghanistan are also called Beshir. Most of the carpets are woven by the Ersari Turkomen nomads. The Beshir carpet designs are from Herati motifs with geometric patterns and boteh. Related carpets are Ersari and Salor, but have different aesthetic from neighbouring Turkmenistan's carpets.

All CarpetU2 carpets are subject to cleaning with high quality antibacterial and moth protection products according to Persian law.

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
