KARAJA Carpet Properties:

Visibility: Karaja rugs have very unique design attributes that distinguish them from other Northwestern IRAN rugs and carpets. Persian KARAJA rugs have repeating medallion designs. The only other repeating medallion design is found in carpets of the TURKAMEN tribe who are living in the North and Northeastern IRAN.

Quality: The quality of KARAJA carpets is excellent.

Size & Shapes: KARAJA carpets come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet). You can also find large rugs up to 10 x 18 feet.

Color: Dark red was the dominate color in older (around 1945) KARAJA, but newer ones tend to have ivory backgrounds and lighter colors.

Texture: Wool, cotton; tight pile.

Foundation: Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either cotton or wool.

Knots: Almost all the KARAJA rugs and carpets have Turkish Knots. The quality of the carpet depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages around 53 KPSI (20 RAJ).

Price: KARAJA carpets are geometric and have an all-over pattern that makes them beautiful and attractive. Be prepared to pay $6-$10 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from KARAJA. Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value

Where is KARAJA?(QARAJEH)

Village of KARAJA( GHARADJAH)
Village of KARAJA
Northwest of IRAN
KARAJA (Qarajeh) is a village located at the northwestern extremity of the Heriz weaving area, near Tabriz. It is relatively small and isolated, accessible by an unpaved road to the west of the Tabriz-Ahar road. Its two hundred year old mosque is filled with what would be called 'KARAJA Runners' in the trade. KARAJA carpets have a different palette and structure from the main Heriz group and generally have a loosely inserted single weft, giving the carpet an almost completely smooth back. The drawing is open and almost childlike, and motifs are often highly geometric. Red tones tending toward orange is a common secondary color. Green is almost always present. Borders are often simply drawn.

The standard HERIZ medallion is used in KARAJA (Qarajeh) weaving, but some carpets and many smaller rugs are ornamented with medallions almost certainly taken from earlier KARAJA 'tribal' kennareh (runners) that typically have woolen warp and weft, finely knotted, long pile, and very intense colors.
