Karaja Rugs

JessBy Jessica Allan




Karaja rugs are a type of Persian rug woven in the northwestern region of Iran. Different spellings include Karadja and Karaje. They are similar in design to Heriz rugs although they often come in smaller sizes and have a slightly softer color palette. The most common design includes a single row of distinctive hooked medallions. The medallions are typically surrounded by geometric and tribal style motifs.  They typically feature color schemes of reds, oranges, ivory and blues. They are woven with a wool pile on a cotton or wool foundation with a single weft. Newer Karaja rugs typically have a cotton foundation. Turkish knots are used in Karajas.
