Karadjeh, Qaradjeh, Gharadjeh, Gharajeh Rugs and Carpets

Karadjeh also spelled Karajeh, Qaradjeh, Gharadjeh, Gharajeh is a very small village north east of Tabriz in north west Iran very close to the border of the Republic of Azerbaijan and republic of Armenia. The weavers in this area produce beautiful hand knotted carpets mostly small sizes and runners. The design is geometrical multi-medallion in red. Occasionally we see dark blue and ivory backgrounds in Karadjeh rugs. The knots are symmetrical with flat double corded selvages on the sides. Using deep blue, sky blue and turquoise is also very common in the area. As you can see on the map, Karadjeh is to the north west of Heriz.

Here, I am posting few pictures of an antique old Karadjeh runner with the size of  2' 8" x 10' 10", early 20th century with beautiful 5-medallion design in red. It is in a very good condition and we have priced it for $2,950.

We also have few new Karadjeh runners in red and ivory background with birds and geometric designs. The newer versions of Karadjeh rugs have strong colors of turquoise, orange, and pink. These new pieces are priced $1,950. Sizes are 2' 6" x 10'.
