Kilim Sumak Carpets : The Soumak is woven in herringbone design. In Soumak wool and silk threads are used so we have wool, silk, and the wool-silk Soumak. The Sumak kilims are woven throughout the East, but mainly in the Caucasus, in the area situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The name comes from the city Shamakhi, the commercial centre and the capital of the province of Shirva.

Turkaman Carpets : The Turkaman carpets are being woven in several regions of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, eastern Turkestan, Afghanistan and Belutschistan. Basjir, Salor, Τekke-Bochara, Jolam-Bocharaband, Ersar, Tjaudor and Yomut carpets, which are characteristic examples of the Bokhara techniques, belong to the category of the Turkaman carpets. Some of the regions in Turkmenistan, where carpets are being woven, are Ashkabad, Bakharden, Gueok-Tepe, Kizyl-Arvat and Merv. Deep red and different tones of red, even purple or brown are their principal colors. Their main carpets designs include repeated octagonal, rhombi, the motifs gul and yomut. Their warp is woolen.

Kilim: It is a type of textile without a pile, that preceded the carpet with a pile and it is mainly made by nomads. It has often got no back or front surface and it can be used on both sides.

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
