Kum rugs, also known as Qum or Ghom rugs, hail from the city of Meshkinshahr in northwest Iran. These exquisite handwoven creations blend centuries-old craftsmanship with contemporary elegance. Let’s explore what makes Kum rugs truly special:
Historical Roots and Influence:
- The rugged cliffs of Azerbaijan shelter Meshkinshahr, where rug weaving thrives.
- Influenced by Mongols who settled in the region during the 13th century, Qum rugs bear traces of ancient techniques.
- Their bold designs reflect resilience and cultural heritage.
Materials and Durability:
- Crafted from flawlessly hand-spun wool, Qum rugs boast dense and glossy piles.
- Some incorporate goat hair or silk for added texture and richness.
- The symmetrical Turkish double knotting technique ensures longevity.
Vibrant Colors and Versatility:
- Kum rugs use a wide range of colors, brighter and more colorful than Isfahan or Nain rugs.
- Warm reds, olive greens, navy blues, and taupe create a beautiful palette.
- Whether as room-sized rugs or smaller pieces, Qum rugs enhance any space.
