Scope note
Style of textiles, particularly carpets, from the area around Karaja and the nearby range of Karadagh mountains in northwestern Iran, just south of the Azerbaijan border northeast of Tabriz. The carpets are thick, woollen and knotted with either a geometrical or a floral pattern. The best-known pattern shows three geometric medallions that are similar to those in Caucasian carpets; the central medallion has a latch-hooked contour and differs in color from the others, which are eight-pointed stars.
