Antique Karaja carpet

Circa 1890
366 × 270 cm 12’ x 8’10”


A true masterpiece of tribal weaving, this exceptional finely woven antique Karaja carpet is one of the best we have seen in 30 years! Stunning rich saturated colours, these beautiful natural vegetable dyes have aged amazingly over the last 120 odd years.  This amazing carpet has been woven by talented weavers, who spaced the design of latch-hook motifs and eight-pointed stars in the main field incredibly well.  The green dyes and variety of colours are truly stunning and even better in real life.  Please look at all the additional images attached to see how good this carpet really is.

Dating from 1890-1900 the condition is remarkable, with almost a full height wool pile all over, with this fine weave too and original fringe ends in tact this is a collectable and highly decorative piece.

Please request a home visit to arrange a day and time to view this carpet at home.  Alternatively purchase online and we can ship worldwide, including free underlay to keep this beautiful antique carpet safe and secure on the floor.

Karaja carpets and rugs were woven in a village in the northeast of the Heriz region of Persia, not far from the Azerbaijan Border.  Their carpets and rugs often use 8 pointed star motifs and sometimes they weave in animals and people which adds great interest. They are easily recognisable with three repeating medallions similar to those in caucasian rugs. Other designs are the latch-hooked design a tribal motif we can see on this rich exciting carpet.
