The city is rich in history and monuments and a source of high end quality silk rugs for the past hundred years, earning itself a high reputation of the finest Persian rugs. Qom rugs vary in design and colors often have different patterns that are not very traditional. Typically their designs have center medallion and tend to be vivid and bright, and come in light or red colors but weavers also incorporate other Persian rug styles into the Qom rugs resulting in dramatic and unique styles. The fine and shiny natural silk material of the Qom rugs make them shine and vibrant and are an excellent choice for not only laying on the floor but also framing and hanging on walls. Standard Qom rugs have 600 KPSI (knots per square inch), and those that are more high end can have up to 600-750 KPSI.
