Bijar Carpets : The Bijar carpets have taken their name from the homonymous small Kurdish town Bijar that is located in Western Iran. The Bijar are very high quality carpets and their name implies toughness and durability. They are thick tight-woven carpets with double knots and excellent quality wool. The most famous design is called Herati-mahi (mahi = fish). Another typical design is a central medallion and flowers.

Kurdi Carpets : Kurdistan is a mountainous area south of Azerbaijan. The area has been inhabited since ancient times by Kurdish nomads and seminomads, who live on the western border of Persia as farmers and produce the best wool in the country. The area is avery active centre of carpet weaving. Wonderful carpets are woven there, with geometric designs rhombi, medallions, little ornaments and the well-known designs Herati, Mina-Khani. The background colors of the Kurdi carpets is usually dark blue or deepred.

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.

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

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
