Qum weavers are known for their skill and use of quality materials. This ancient city produced three grades of silk, and only the highest grade was used for rugs. The best silk is called “Qum” and offers a luster and softness that gives these rugs their fine character. Qum only began producing rugs in the 1930s. It quickly came to create rugs that rival those produced in rug-weaving cities that have been producing rugs for centuries.
This rug has the signature of the workshop or master weaver who designed this rug, which is a sign of a high-quality rug. The red borders of this rug help to define the space and would make an excellent way to create a path through a room or make a statement in the space.
