Persian Silk Qum (Kum) (Ghom) rugs and carpets

The Holy Persian city of Qum lies 97 miles south west of Tehran. Qum has been an important theological centre for Shia Islam since the early sixteenth century. Despite not having a long history of weaving, Qum has secured its position as Iran's premier producer of silk rugs and carpets. Famous for their soft pastel colours and fine weaving, Qum's rugs and carpets are now world famous and highly prized.
