Qum Carpets : The weaving of Qum carpets began on a large scale in the 1930's and they have experimented with various designs of old carpets such as Senna, Kashan, Isfahan and other renowned Persian carpets. A new generation of designers created new designs with rare colors for Persian carpets, like light green and turquoise-blue. This way Qum carpets developed an original character of their own. Among the many famous projects is the Garden: a design with several repeated blocks, within which are depicted flowers or animals (images of birds, winged lions, and dragons), old Persian hunting representations or various historical scenes. Prayer carpets with various religious themes are also well known. The carpets have a high knot density and high class materials. Silk and fine quality wool establish them as very high quality carpets.

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

Classic Carpets: Carpets that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by carpet designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these carpets, though there may be slight variations in weaving.

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

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
