Yalameh Rugs

JessBy Jessica Allan




Yalameh (Yalamah) rugs are a type of Persian village rug woven in the region of Iran. They are similar in design to Shiraz, Qashqai, and Khamseh rugs, although they usually have brighter colors than most Persian rugs. Yalameh rugs have a unique and very recognizable latch-hooked diamond medallion like the one pictured below. These medallions are typically arranged in a single vertical row. They are usually woven with wool on a cotton foundation, but may also have wool foundations. They are finely woven with Turkish Knots and have short piles. These rugs come in a variety of sizes, and are perfect for tribal decor.
