The town of Veramin is located about 45 km south-east of Tehran. It is known for the production of carpets with the Mina Khani pattern. Previously, the pattern was also used in carpets from other areas, but today it is largely found only on Veramin carpets. Overall, these are beautiful and durable carpets with excellent wool quality, and the ground colour is often beige or a gorgeous medium blue/dark blue. The warp and weft are of cotton, and they are made with Senneh knots. The knot density is 23,000-46,000 per ft2.
