This fine silk rug is an excellent example of master craftsmanship woven by expert weavers. The rug is in excellent condition with no sign of wear and beautifully soft underfoot.
This Persian Qum Silk Rug is a beautiful piece and a luxurious addition to traditional spaces such as bedrooms and living rooms. The rug can also be used as a wall hanging, and would make an excellent wall feature in public rooms.
