Beautiful Luxurious Room Size Ivory Allover Floral Design Fine Vintage Silk Persian Qum Rug, country of origin: Persian Rugs, Circa date: Vintage – Qum rugs are always a special find that delight collectors and interior designers alike. The city has a long history as a center of the Islamic faith, but its history as a center for rug production is only about one hundred years old. Some believe that Qum’s rug industry began in the early 1920s but was not recognized until the 1930s. Its designs draw inspiration from traditional rug designs from surrounding areas. The Qum weavers take these designs and transform them into original designs that are colorful and unique. This vintage piece uses brighter reds to frame earthier burgundies, creams, and browns. The result is a vintage design that is rich and warm.
This rug uses an allover floral design that is perfect for a Boho Chic or Maximalist space. It has a classic feel and a design with a high level of detail. Qum rugs are distinguished by their use of silk as a weft material. Silk is a fiber that comes from the cocoon of the silkworm. It is incredibly strong and can be spun into fine threads that are still strong. It has a sheen that catches light in the room, and it holds brilliant color. Silk also creates a supple feel and softness underfoot that few fibers can achieve.
Silk has been a valuable material throughout history because of its qualities. It also requires great care to raise and turn into usable fibers. This is one of the reasons why Qum rugs are considered highly collectible.
Another reason is that the Qum weavers are masters of design. They draw inspiration from the traditional designs and motifs of rugs that were created hundreds of years ago and combine them in a way that is contemporary and suitable for modern tastes. This rug is an excellent vintage example with a timeless design that is still relevant in today’s interior designs, making this a beautiful addition to your home or business.
