Sultanabad Carpets : In the province of Farahan is found the city of Arak, formerly known as Sultanabad, with 500,000 citizens it is built on the ruins of a small town called Daskerah. Modern Arak, which means good land, is a relatively new city with fertile soil. In the city is the fortress Soltan Abad, whose wall is 7 metres thick. The carpets woven in the city and surrounding villages are identical to the Sarouk carpets, but the quality, colors and designs are intended primarily for the U.S. market. The Sultanabad rugs and carpets are very sturdy due to their very tight weave and the fact that they are woven with a double weft. Their wool is of excellent quality. The colors used are red, pink, beige and dark blue as a background. Their designs consist mainly of medallions surrounded by plain colored surfaces. Also full, dense and fine designs are woven, with curvilinear flowers like in the Kirman carpets.

old Carpets : In older carpets there may be little wear.

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.

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

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
