Silk Qum carpet

Circa 1980
305 × 197 cm 10’ x 6’5”


A beautiful pale very fine silk Qum carpet with a subtle colour palette. Woven by master weavers this piece has been made with the finest silk and skill to create this highly detailed design.  This beautiful pale Qum silk carpet is in perfect original condition and woven around 1980.

Qum was not a major weaving centre until the 1930’s. They took designs from other weaving centres such as Isfahan, Tabriz and Kashan and made them in to their own unique style.

. . .

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.
