Veramin is a town located 30 miles southeast of Tehran, the capital city of Iran. Veramin has a very diverse population. In addition to its city population, its surrounding areas are home to and a gathering place for many tribes such as Kurds, Lurs, Arabs, Ghashghais and Turkomans. As a result, Veramin rugs are made in all three settings of workshop, village and nomadic. The nomads weave both pile and flat weaves. The flat weaves consist of kelims, saddlebags and salt bags. In their designs, mainly geometric, they employ a variety of motifs such as the Turkoman gul, the Caucasian crab, and the Persian boteh, all in bright colors.
However, the signature design of Veramin is the mina-khani design in which the field is covered with daisies connected together with lines that form diamonds or circles in an all-over layout. The background color, in this design, is usually blue and the motifs are usually woven in white, yellow, orange, bright red, and blue.
