The Ghashghai kilim rug is made in the so-called slot technique so that it can be interpreted by both sides. Unlike knotted carpets the Ghashghai kilim characterizes a clarity and simplicity. Typical motifs and elements are for example comb-like motifs, diagonal zigzag lines, which achieve in different colors almost psychedelic effects, medallion & corner patterns on a monotone background. There is in the arrangement of the symbols in the Ghashghai kilims no symmetry, which additionally gives the rug a more advanced form of the uniqueness and specificity. Dominant colors are brownish, rusty red, orange or blue tones.
