The city of Qum is a recently established centre for the weaving of urban style rugs with workshops appearing there from around 1927 onwards. It rapidly became a significant and important centre for the creation of technically fine silk rugs and carpets, though fine wool pile rugs are also made there. The repertoire of their designs is varied, ranging from designs based on Safavid Persian traditions of the 16th and 17th Centuries, through to individual creative designs of unparalleled technical and artistic visual excellence, which can often be described as groundbreaking. The fine silk used in their rugs allows the highly skilled weavers to draw exceptional precise detail often in minute scale.
This extremely finely woven silk Qum rug, dating to the mid-20th Century exhibits true characteristics of a Qum revivalist approach to rug design made with the best possible quality materials. The design displays an architectural inspired pattern based on the elaborate interior decoration of a tin glazed ceramic tiled domed ceiling or interior arch.
