Kurdish Rug—Daraa


Daraa is a Kurdish Rah Rah Rug.

Finely woven in tea-dyed wool, these attractive rugs are woven using Soumak technique. They originate from the Kerman area in Iran, but most are made by nomadic Kurds in Northern Iraq & South Eastern Turkey.

The name ‘rah rah’ means ‘road road’, this being a reference to the horizontal lines of the designs. This piece however is slightly different in design, it is called a "Baklava" which references the diagonal shapes. They are tightly woven and very hard wearing, especially suited to any heavy traffic areas such as entryways and hallways.

Because of the colour palette & designs, rah-rahs combine happily with both kilims and knotted-pile rugs, hence making them extremely versatile.
