Many rug and carpet experts see Varamins as being among those Persian carpets most authentic in terms of traditional style and motif. They have geometric patterns with repeated medallions, especially on runners. They are made by tribal people who either live in or pass by Varamin. The principal colours used in Varamin carpets are usually dark brown and dark red on khaki or dark blue backgrounds. The village and workshop weavers mainly use the asymmetrical (Persian) knot, while the nomads, depending on their ethnicity, use either the asymmetrical or the symmetrical (Turkish) knot.
The most common design among Varamin rugs is the "Mina Khani" design. The foundation is mostly made of cotton, the Persian Senneh knot is used for these rugs as opposed to the more widespread Turkish knot. Varamin is considered being among the elite of Persian carpets.
