One of the most traditional designs that is produced there is jungle design (pictures attached); a name given to such carpets due to the numerous stylized trees that normally decorates the field.

Josheghans are woven in different sizes from small (about 200x130cm) to large ones but the most common size is about 320 by 230 centimeters. The production of such carpets has been declining and they area getting harder to get.

The materials that are used to make such carpets are wool pile, dyed with natural elements, on cotton base. Such carpets are generally woven with red field and navy border.
