More about the provenance Garajeh | Iran
Garajeh is located in North West Iran near Heriz. Garajeh rugs are the most known type of Karadagh rugs (other kinds are Lambaran and Meshkin). The ground color is usually a clear red, the ornament colors are usually light ivory tones. Garajeh rugs are good tasteful and durable rugs which do not deny the neighborhood of Heriz and Bakhshayesh, in fact they are strongly inspired by that region. Good and durable wool is used for these rugs. Altogether one can say that Garajeh rugs are solid, beautiful, durable rugs with an extra portion of character.
This is an Oriental nomadic rug. The word "nomad" comes from the Greek word "nemein". Nomads are wandering tribes, shepherds, stockbreeders, or hunters. In the minorly populated areas of Asia and North Africa they move with their herds, all their belongings and their tents to new places constantly. Many states already tried to make them settle down with various success. Mostly it is the women of the tribes which contribute to the family's income with their carpet knotting and weaving while the men breed stock or go hunting. But due to the circumstances of nomadic life the carpet production often lacks regularity and precision in form and design, which actually adds to their originality and makes them even more popular. The wool is mostly dyed with vegetable dyes.
