Ghoum (also spelled Qum, Ghum, Qom, etc.) silk rugs, other than being silk on silk, are some of the most elusive rugs to pin to any specific type of Design. Some of the most distinguishing elements to these rugs are their high investment value, very thin pile height .To handle, high quality Ghom silks are fairly dense considering how thin the construction seems. When lifted, Ghom silks will often drape over the hand, and are very malleable, often able to be folded up neatly and compact.

Hunting Scene Rugs – The tradition of hunting is deeply immersed within Persian epic history. Years before the first hunting scene rug was ever woven, hunting stories were passed down orally for over 1300 years.
Because this practice was so deeply embedded in Persian culture, it is no surprise that weavers portrayed hunting scenes in their work as early as the 16th century. These hunting designs show no specific city they do not directly refer to any particular person or historical event.
