Oriental carpets are divided into three categories depending on where they are manufactured namely; nomadic carpets, village carpets and workshop carpets.

...village carpets and...



...workshop carpets.

Carpets from the various categories are different in many ways. What is known as a mistake in a workshop carpet, for example an abrash, is a common detail in nomad carpets. Nomad carpets on the other hand have lively and rustic expression which you never find in a workshop carpet.
