Qom, Iran is a relative newcomer as a weaving center of Persian rugs. However, Qom Persian rugs have quickly gained an international reputation for their world class high quality. Indeed, our Qom Persian rug is 100% fine silk and it features an incredibly fine 1050 kpsi. As such, it can be considered a collectors item.
The rug features a central medallion design. Additionally, the weaver surrounded the central medallion with vine floral which is then again enclosed inside the floral frieze. The rug features a rich ivory color as the base and it is contrasted with rich red coloration. As is customary with Qom Persian rugs, the weaver interlaced their signature into the top of the rug.
Qom is also the world’s central location for Shi’a Islam and it is a significant pilgrimage site. Additionally, Qom is the location of the Fatima bint Musa Rida which is a shrine dedicated to a direct descendant of the prophet.
