Symmetrical, repeated floral bunches dominate the elongated main field of this charming Indian Qom. When you closely examine this piece, you begin to notice how the predominately red and cream colour scheme is eloquently punctuated by dashes of sky blue, viridian and yellow ochres that adorn the various floral motifs. As your eye traces, away from the three central medallions one notes arguably the finest part of this rug. Lying at the corners of the main field the cream backdrop gives way to a small curve of intense midnight blue. Inside which tightly wound, intricately established dense floral patterns writhe and swirl to decorate the ends of this charming rug. Three quiet concentric bands finish and frame the entire piece.
Modelled upon the famous Iranian silk Qoms (also known as Qum, Ghom or Ghum) that populate the finest palaces and collections in the world this rug is well versed in its design reference. This item was most likely made in the Uttar Pradesh region of northern India. An Indian Qum of this size and detailing would have taken months to handloom by village artisans and it is incredible to think about the amount of labour and devotion that has gone into the construction of not only this rug, but all the handloomed items in our Bazaar.
This Indian Qom is not a gaudy statement piece. Instead, it is a polite rug that could compliment many pre-decorated hall or lengthy landing spaces. It remains in a near perfect condition with vibrant, bright cotton fringes.
