A Qom rug.

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 among the most expensive in the world.[1] Tree of life and medallion motifs feature heavily in rugs knotted in Qom.
