Persian Karaja rugs (also spelled Karadagh Gharadjeh) are woven in the Northwestern region of Iran near Tabriz. These rugs have a very similar weave and character to Heriz rugs which are also woven nearby. They are woven with single wefts, and Turkish knots similar to those woven in the Hamedan province. For that reason they are sometimes mistaken for Persian Kurdistan rugs.
Most Karaja rugs are easily distinguishable by their design which often consists of vertical Heriz-style medallions. We recently added several Karaja rugs to our shop which can be seen below. Reds, Blues, Ivory, Rust and Orange are common color schemes found in Karaja rugs. Karaja rugs are quite popular for their bold designs and tribal nature.
