Persian Qum Rugs / Ghom Carpets
Persian Qum Rugs - Production of Qum rugs began in the early 20th century in the holy city of Qum, Persia. The rugs are made of a thin pile in silk and wool and are often used as wall hangings because of their fine quality. Unlike traditional designs, Qum rugs feature small allover designs with a city style featuring curvilinear lines. The primary colors often used are red blue and ivory although other colors are common.
