Gharajeh rugs, sometimes spelled “Karaja,” are a distinctive type of Persian carpet originating from the village of Gharajeh in the East Azerbaijan Province of Iran, near the city of Tabriz. These rugs are well-known for their unique designs, vibrant colours, and high-quality craftsmanship. Here are the key features and characteristics of Gharajeh rugs:

Design and Patterns

  1. Geometric Motifs: Gharajeh rugs are characterized by their bold geometric designs, which often include a central medallion flanked by smaller medallions along the length of the rug.
  2. Hexagonal and Diamond Shapes: Common motifs include hexagons and diamonds, which are arranged in a repeating pattern across the rug. These shapes are often filled with intricate details and smaller geometric patterns.
  3. Border Designs: The borders of Gharajeh rugs typically feature multiple bands of geometric patterns, which frame the central field and add to the rug’s overall complexity and visual appeal.
  4. Tribal Influences: The designs often reflect the tribal influences of the region, incorporating symbolic motifs and traditional patterns unique to the local weaving culture.

Colours

  • Vibrant and Rich Tones: Gharajeh rugs often use vibrant colours such as deep reds, rich blues, and warm earth tones. These colours are typically achieved using natural dyes.
  • Contrast: The use of contrasting colours helps to highlight the intricate designs and geometric patterns, making them stand out vividly.
