Kilim is called to a kind of handmade carpet, the texture of which is non-abrasive; it is usually made of natural wool and is sometimes interwoven with a mixture of wool and goat hair. Kilim weaving is a women's art and is mostly seen in rural and nomadic areas of Iran.
Ahar is the most important and famous city of Iran in Verni Bafi, but considering that nomads mostly did this art, they probably brought Verni Bafi to Tehran by moving to Tehran, so that this handicraft is considered a part of Tehran's original handicrafts.
Verni is a kind of special rug and beautiful hand-woven fabric that seems to have been created by combining carpets and kilims. In some areas it is used as a cover or decoration of pavilions. Verni is also known as carpet-like or nomadic kilim. "Verni" is a product between kilims and carpets, which, like other kilims, is woven mentally and without a plan in advance by the women and girls of the nomads and villagers of Arasbaran region. The texture of this rug is provided by cotton, wool and silk threads like a carpet, and sometimes sheep’s wool, which is abundant in the region, is used for weaving. At present, Iran is the only exporter of this product. Verni’s design reflects the beliefs, customs and traditions of the people of this region, and in its texture mostly the imagination of animals and birds’ shapes are used. In Verni Bafi colors like cream, crimson, light blue, white and vivid colors are usually used and are marketed in different dimensions.
