The Holy city of Qum (Qom, or Ghom) is located 100km south of Tehran in the centre of Iran and is rich in history. Although not traditionally a centre of production, rugs woven in the past hundred years are amongst the best quality , high knot density and finely detailed on the market today,

 Silk carpets as well as wool carpets are famous here and the natural silk from Qum is known worldwide for its high quality. The carpets use patterns and designs from very different regions of Iran. Among others, figurative patterns with stylized plants and animals are common. Medallion designs can also be found.but it is unusual to see such a beautiful repeat paisley design .

What People Say - 


Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
