Ghom Kork / hedvábí koberec z Persie / Írán.
This carpet is knotted in the holy town of Ghom in central Persia. The wool used is known as cork-wool and it is sheared from the neck of the lamb. This makes it possible to spin the wool extra thin, thus leading to durable threads which makes the carpet very tight. The carpet is extremly well-made and in some cases very detailed. This kind of carpet shows a fine tradition of knotting silk carpets.
