Dazzling village runner from northwest Iran near the border with Azerbaijan.
This is a Karajeh but with more of a Heriz medallion motif, with its simplified geometry, than a typical Karajeh, which is more ‘busy’ and intricate.
Karajeh rugs are closely related to the Heriz rugs from the same region. This is a tribal area that often weaves runners that are long and narrow, which work well in Western hallways.
Very good overall condition with almost no signs of wear on the wool pile. The cotton fringes are in good condition without excessive wear. Minor wear on the side cords.
Wool woven onto cotton warp. Intricate eye-dazzling motif with rich colors.
Exact size is 10 ft. 10 in. by 3 ft. 1 in. 1960s.
There are multiple spellings for the village of Karadja– including Gharajeh– in the English and German rug books describing their wonderful carpets and runners.
Shipping will be $43 in continental U.S.
