Antique Karaja rug

Circa 1890
202 × 146 cm 6’7” x 4’9”


Beautiful antique Karaja rug from the late 19th century, soft yellow border and stunning green medallions.  In outstanding original condition, with a lovely soft wool pile all over.

Karaja rugs were woven in the North-West of Persia, not far from the weavers of the Caucasus, which is why we see animal motifs and geometric designs from antique Caucasian rugs.  Look for the lovely small Reindeer motifs shown four times around the central medallion.

We travel all over the UK showing our inventory of carpets and rugs to private customers and interior designers.  Of course you are very welcome to visit our barn showroom too, book in a visit to us soon.

Antique Karaja rugs were woven in a village in the northeast of the Heriz region of Persia, not far from the Azerbaijan Border.  Their designs generally consisted of 8 pointed star motifs like this piece as well as weaving in animals and people which adds great interest. The sun-burst design is not uncommon or they would weave a more geometric central motif known as a latch-hook design.
