Qom rugs are made in the Qom Province of Iran, around 100 km south of Tehran. Although rug weaving in Qom was not a major industry until the past 100 years the luxurious silk and wool rugs of Qom are known for their high quality and are regarded amongst the best in the world.[1] Tree of life and medallion motifs feature heavily in rugs knotted in Qom.
