Persian Qum or Qom rugs are named for the province approximately 100km south of Tehran. Constructed of wool and silk, these luxurious rugs are not only known for their high-quality craftsmanship but are considered a smart investment for a collector, as the value continues to increase over time.
Persian Qums feature wool and silk rugs that are heavily knotted with the tree of life and medallion motifs. This collector’s rug, however, also displays the rarer stylized flora and fauna design. Because these rugs can be smaller than other types of Persian rugs and constructed with silk, they are often displayed on walls, rather than spread on floors. Considered some of the finest in Iranian craftsmanship, Qum rugs have a very high knot density and exquisitely vibrant coloring.
The natural silk Qum rug is discreetly luxurious but boldly crafted.
