This impressive repeated motif design rug is made of silk and comes from Qum. Its remarkable feature is the presence of the boteh pattern which repeats itself in different colours in the field of the carpet. The Boteh motif is a paisley-shaped design often with ornamentation inside and around the edges. The motif is often used to symbolize immortality and the season of autumn. The pattern is considered by some to be a flame, other interpretations also exists such as a leaf, a bush or a pine. The motif is an ancient symbol that appears to have its origins in ancient Persia. The field of this carpet is framed by a main border that is on a base colour that dark blue. The difference in the tone and colours of the main border, with the darker coloured green guard borders on each side of it, compliment the rug magnificently creating, as it does, a huge impact. This carpet will look impressive in any setting.
