The rug name comes from the particular color and style the women of this area weave. The colors in these rugs are created by carding natural sheep wool together (black, white and brown) to produce varying shades of grays and tans.

Traditionally the design is geometric with a central element and corner triangles. Fancy borders are becoming commonplace and the outside is surrounded in black.
