Antique Ghoum ( Qum ) Oriental Rugs
Qum rugs are typically made of very fine silk pile woven on a
wool or cotton foundation and using a Persian type knot.
These exclusive carpets are usually highly detailed due to
the fineness of the silken thread resulting in ultra high knot densities
- as high as one million knots per square meter.
This beautiful, detailed and finely-balanced antique Persian
Ghoum hand woven carpet is currently being offered by Nejad Rugs.
The Antique Qum Rug
Common themes found among the diverse archives of Qum carpets include the Tree of Life, pictorial

The Rug-Producing Region of Qum, Iran
Qum - also spelled Ghoum (Qom, Quom, Ghom) - is the 7th largest city in Iran
with a population of more than one million people. One of Iran's holiest cities, Qum is
the largest center for Shia scholarship in the world. It is also both the cultural hub and
scientific capital of Iran and has developed into an industrial center notable for the
distribution of petroleum and petroleum products, and the
natural gas pipeline from Bandar Anzali to Tehran.
Because of exquisite nature
and fineness of these carpets - as well as their relatively small sizes -
they are often hung vertically like a tapestry:
