Qum’s are finely knotted and use high quality wool and silk. Large looms are set up in Qum so you often find oversized wool and silk Qum’s. Designs generally consist of central medallions with elaborate corner spandrel designs, often these represent the ceiling designs in mosques. Qum was also fond of producing hunting scene rugs, and unusual colours.
Our love of silk rugs and carpets has allowed us to gain quite a selection of fine examples, both antique and contemporary. We have some remarkable silk Isfahan carpets dating back to the turn of the century as well as a rare collection of Kum Kapi rugs. Please contact us if you would like more information about this stunning silk Qum or any other silk rugs.
We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment. Please request a home visit to view this silk Qum carpet in-situ.
