Name: GHOUM
Origin: Iran (Centre)
Dimensions: 160 x 109 cm
Wool and silk in perfect condition
Richly decorated, very fine
These carpets are made in the holy city of Qom, in the centre of Iran. The wool used is called kork wool and comes from the lamb's neck. It makes spinning extremely thin and resistant threads possible, thus resulting in a high knot density. These carpets are marvellously crafted and, in some cases, richly detailed. This type of rug is a beautiful example of the wool and silk-weaving tradition.
Sold with certificate
Perfect condition.
Imported in the 1980s.

Can be picked up on location
