Fine Silk and / or Wool Persian Qum Rugs

Qum Rugs - The production of Qum rugs began in the early decades of the 20th century. Qum rugs are identified as such because of their historical association with the Islamic holy city of Qum, where they were originally woven. Qum itself an ancient and important city in central Persia, where it hosts a sizable permanent population in addition to a constant influx of pilgrims and other religious travelers. While antique Qum rugs do not boast the ancient pedigree of Tabriz or Sultanabad rugs and carpets, these special and storied carpets represent a distinct style with a great deal of merit.

The Qum rugs themselves are made of a thin pile in silk and wool, as most Qum rugs are traditionally used as wall hangings. The fine materials with which Qum rugs are woven allow for weavers to draw exquisite, precise detail work throughout. Unlike traditional designs, Qum rugs generally feature small allover designs, and are considered an example of a city style. Qum rugs are also often characterized by exceptional curvilinear lines. The color pallet most associated with Qum rugs consists of red, blue and ivory, although other colors are common as well.
