Bring the rich tapestry of Persian culture into your living space with this captivating Persian carpet. Each knot is a brushstroke of tradition, weaving together a narrative that transcends time and trends.
Qum rugs are manufactured in the city of Qum, which is located in central Iran about 100 kilometers away from the country’s capital city, Tehran.
The Qum Province is often referred to as a holy city and is as famous for its rich religious history and religious monuments as it is for its high quality, pure silk rugs.
Some of the highest quality Persian rugs are produced in this religious city, although the history of weaving in Qum is still fairly new as compared to some of the other rug weaving provinces.
Rug weaving in Qum started sometime in the 1930s when the rug merchants from the neighboring Kashan moved their looms along the historic trade route to the oasis of Qum.
The most notable features of this amazing rug are its central medallion and the Herati design.
Herati design rugs are handwoven using high-quality wool and/or silk, featuring a bold and intricate pattern of swimming fish in a repeating motif or a repeated diamond-shaped pattern. The colors used in these rugs are often vibrant and lively.
These designs are a timeless classic that will bring an elegant and sophisticated touch to any space.
An amazing aspect of this carpet is the predominance of the colour blue. Blue is a tranquil color designed to bring people a sense of inner peace. In many cultures, blue is also strongly associated with trust and loyalty. After red and beige, blue is one of the most common colors used in Persian rugs.
Invest in more than a carpet; embrace an enduring legacy. A Persian carpet is not just a piece of decor; it’s a timeless investment that will be cherished by generations to come, each thread carrying a story of its own.
