Gharajeh Persian rugs, also known as Qarajeh or Gharaje, are made in the surrounding rural areas of the Heris and Chador resident tribes. These rugs are usually softer in texture in comparison to the rugs made in rural areas which are denser. Local weavers tend to use bright colors like red, yellow, and brown in addition to the traditional light blue color. These rugs are usually woven in geometric patterns and feature central medallions with three borders and geometric borders along the edges. The texture of these rugs is dense and they have a pile, which is one of the distinguishing features of Ghalicheh rugs. They are made with white cotton threads and blue wool yarns that are either light or dark in color. Local weavers usually weave these rugs in different sizes, mostly in the form of runners or two-panel floor mats that are wide in comparison. The weavers usually use their own symmetrical Turkish knotting style, which results in dense and tightly packed piles. The asymmetrical Persian knot can also be seen in some cities like Ardabil. The pile of these rugs is made of thick, lustrous wool that is handspun from local sheep, and the foundation is made of cotton, which is strong. In some Turkish tribal carpets, goat hair may be used, and in some regions like Ardabil, silk is blended in with wool to create a luxurious rug. The coloring of the rugs is done using natural vegetable and root dyes. These rugs are generally very durable and long-lasting, and the weaving techniques used today are similar to those used thousands of years ago.
The Pile material is 100% natural fine wool and the foundation is made of natural cotton.
