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.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Ghom. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The repeating elements in the center field of this Ghom rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.
The background of this Ghom is yellow beige. The border features blue gray, olive green and dark red.
The pile of this Ghom has been woven from so-called cork wool. Cork wool is a very fine thread, almost velvety to the touch. Cork wool is obtained from the neck, belly and inner sides of the sheep's legs and is of particularly high quality. The weft and warp threads of this Ghom are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
