DESCRIPTION:
This Qum rug is knotted in the holy town of Qum in central Persia. The wool used is known as cork-wool and it is sheared from the neck of the lamb. This is rug is woven on a Silk Warp with very high knot count. This makes it possible to spin the wool extra thin, thus leading to durable threads which makes the carpet very tight. The rug is extremely well-made and in some cases very detailed. This kind of rug shows a fine tradition of knotting silk carpets, truly a highly rare and collectible piece and will appreciate in value over time and a great investment piece.
 

    RUGS WOVEN BY NOMADS: Nomads move continuously and do not stay permanently in one geographic region.They weave handmade carpets on collapsible looms. Due to that fact there may be slight variations in weaving and the different shades of wool with sometimes uneven in shape giving it a real feeling of a genuine nomadic handicraft. The weaving is made from memory and it depends on each artisans momentary inspiration. The workmanship is of high quality from hand spun wool to preparing the natural dyes from organic plants and roots to dye the wool in different colors in preparation for weaving. Persian Handmade rugs have a timeless appeal which transcends the whims of fashion, and are one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly flooring options available. Each unique design represents the artistic vision and fine craftsmanship by the hand of the weaver.
