Nain is a small city located in central Iran that has relatively recently become a renowned center for carpet weaving. Production only began in the 1930’s, but Nain rapidly achieved prominence and high reputation for its production of remarkably fine classical rugs, where materials as well as workmanship are of the highest class. Style and design of Nains are heavily influenced by the Isfahan weavers, but they are easily distinguishable by their unique colour palette. Nain rugs have since become almost legendary for their exceptional fineness and superb construction.
An extremely well-made masterpiece with a high knot density. An incredible example of exemplary carpet making, where complexity and skill are evident in every aspect. The refined craftsmanship results in a very clear and crisp definition of the breathtaking encircled medallion encompassing a beautiful garland of miniature medallions with intricate detailing. Beautiful balance of design and colours enhanced by its tight and compact weave, makes this Nain a classic collectible.
