In the province of Zanjan, three different kinds of carpets are made. The first is double weft and thick-woven, the second kind of carpets are those woven in Afsharieh with double-weft and with very fine designs and colours. Although they resemble those made in Bijar yet they cost much less because the structure, unlike that of Bijar, is not well balanced. The last category is similar to Hamedan rugs.
Carpets woven many years ago have had interesting colours such as light blue, light orange and black (a colour rarely used in Iran). Other colours that one can find in Zanjan productions are red, blue, brown and beige. The most common dimensions are Sajjadeh and runners.
