Handmade oriental rug
200 x 141cm (6'7 x 4'8)
A beautiful example of a fine quality Persian Qum wool rug with silk highlights. It is difficult to determine the age of this piece, the soft gentle colours are certainly indicative of a rug that has the benefit of time. The piece is taken from the private collection of the late Jack Jennings who founded this business some 60 years ago. A number of his hangings and private pieces are now part of our stock and will undoubtedly be of interest. These pieces are either particularly fine or struck a personal note with him when travelling. We very much hope that new owners are as enthusiastic about this wonderful piece

Rug weaving began in Qum in the 1930s. They are renowned for producing some of the finest Persian rugs and carpets in Iran. They are of high quality with excellent materials and are of solid construction. Knot density can range from 300,000 to 1,200,000 per square metre.
They can be made of wool on a cotton foundation or silk on silk. Sometimes the wool rugs have silk highlights. The patterns that they use include the Boteh or Paisley design, the Bakhtiar garden design, hunting scenes or central medallion. Skilled weavers can weave 8000 knots per day on the width of one metre or 8mm per day. A rug measuring 150 x 100cm in the fine quality of 1,200,00 per metre can take a year to make.
When considering buying online it is worth thinking about the provenance of the company as well as the rug. We are a family business with more than 60 years of experience selling rugs. We have an unrivalled reputation and pride ourselves in the level of customer service. We welcome visits to the Tewkesbury shop, alternatively, we are pleased to assist with-online enquiries by email or telephone.
It is worth perhaps being reminded that these handmade rugs are unique and special; owning one is something you can enjoy for many years. I would recommend buying a handmade rug produced using the best natural fibre, which is wool.
We recommend the use of an underlay with this product:
Foxi-underlay to provide grip to stop hand made rugs from moving
