Place of origin

Ghom is a relatively recent place of origin for Persian rugs. The city Ghom (also Gom, Ghoum, Goum) is located in the center of Iran, about 100 km south of the capital city of Tehran. Since building on an old tradition of rug-making was not an option in Ghom, patterns were and are adopted from other areas. With time, however, a unique style has emerged from this. The silk rugs from Ghom are among the most famous and highest quality rugs in the world today. The panel of Ghom rugs often has a light background and is decorated with finely drawn medallion patterns or continuous boteh or vase patterns.

Patterns

The so-called field pattern of this Ghom is reminiscent of a lushly overgrown garden with geometrically structured, individually bordered flowerbeds. This design is distinctive, which is why field design rugs are also called garden rugs in German. The individual panels of the design of this Ghom show different motifs, but follow a strictly symmetrical, rectangular arrangement.

There is a reason for this: large parts of Persia and many other regions of the Middle and Near East are desert or steppe-like arid areas, in which so-called irrigation horticulture is often practiced. Water is brought to the beds through small irrigation channels. Field patterns reflect this irrigation system in a very simplified way. Due to drought in these regions, flowering and green gardens are also a characteristic of it. The field pattern is therefore probably due to the desire to bring a little garden and thus a little paradise into the house. In Koran the term garden, a word of ancient Persian origins, appears very often as an earthly counterpart to paradise.

The background of this Ghom is rusty red. The border features gold, olive green and rusty red.

Material

The silk of the pile of this Ghom allows the colors forming the pattern to shine in different facets depending on the lighting. It makes this Ghom a real highlight and creates a cozy and at the same time very elegant and premium atmosphere in the room. Silk is manually extracted from the cocoons of the silk moth. Since individual silk threads are extremely long, the result is very thin yarns, which are nevertheless tear-resistant under low stress. Smaller rug knots can be made with this thin yarn, which create finer patterns. Therefore, the finest rugs in the world are hand-knotted made of pure silk. In this Ghom even the background is made of pure silk. Due to the thin but durable material of the weft and warp threads, a particularly fine knotting and, therefore, a particularly fine pattern is feasible.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
