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.
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.
Dark red was the dominate color in older (around 1945) KARAJA, but newer ones tend to have ivory backgrounds and lighter colors.
Wool, cotton; tight pile.
Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either cotton or wool.
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).
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.
