Yalemeh or Yalameh rugs are a type of Persian village rug woven in the region of Iran. They are similar in design to Shiraz, Qashqai, and Khamseh rugs, although they usually have brighter colors than most Persian rugs.
Yalameh rugs have a unique and very recognizable latch-hooked diamond medallion like the one pictured . These medallions are typically arranged in a single vertical row. They are usually woven with wool on a cotton foundation, but may also have wool foundations. They are finely woven with Turkish Knots and have short piles. These rugs come in a variety of sizes, and are perfect for tribal decor.
The town of Yalameh lies slightly north of the city of Isfahan in central Iran. Yalameh is well known for its top-quality tribal rugs with diamond geometric designs. In comparison with other tribal rugs, Yallameh is up there with the best.
The pile used in Yalameh rugs is very fine, particularly in comparison to other tribal designs, using soft wool based on a cotton foundation. The pattern is distinctive with large repeated diamonds in a straight line down the carpet, often with geometrical animal or human prints scattered across the field. Dark red or light brown on a blue or orange background is most common for Yalameh, similar to Shiraz rugs, the rugs compliment modern or minimalist furniture beautifully, giving the living space an aura of luxurious style and warm.
