Persian Gharajeh Runner
Persian Gharajeh rugs, also called Karadja or, more commonly, Karaja rugs, are hand woven heirloom textiles that were produced in or near the village of Qarajeh, Heris (Heriz), northeast of Tabriz in the Karadagh region of Iran - just south of the Azerbaijan border in the Iranian province of East Azerbaijan. The Gharajeh rugs and carpet from this area display incredibly unique design attributes that distinguish them from other Northwestern Persian (Iranian) rugs and carpets. Although these carpets typically display strong rectilinear - even geometric - design tendencies, they may exhibit stylistic patterns that may be derivative of, or like, other rug styles - namely the Heriz style.
One of the more commonly seen patterns, shows three large geometric medallions - centrally located in the field of the rug - that are somewhat similar to those of Heriz rug, or even Caucasian rugs and carpets. This central medallion may typically have a latch-hooked contour and differ in color from the two others - and those typically can be based on a figure such as an eight-pointed star. Gharajeh rugs may be loosely categorized into two distinctive groups: The first group is typified by a row - or rows - of medallions. The second group frequently use a significant amount of light blue
Otherwise, the color palette can range from somewhat somber - with indigo blue or madder red field - too intense with stark contrasting colors including oranges, greens and white.
