Nomadic rugs

The nomadic rugs are knotted by travelling nomads. The nomads are following their grassing animals on a journey approximately 2000 km each year. As a couple of examples it is worth to mention the Ghasgai- and Afshar-tribes.

Village rugs

The village rugs are knotted in smaller villages, in which the different families typically use their rug production to supplement their primary income. One of the most important areas is Hamadan. Surrounding the town of Hamadan is more than 1000 villages, each with their own special patterns and colors.
