Nain is a small city in central Iran, near the famous city of Isfahan. Before the start of the 20th century, it was known for producing high quality handmade woolen fabrics. However, due to the decline of the town’s business activity, they commissioned weavers from Isfahan to weave handmade carpets.
They created their own style using bright, creamy colors and shades of blue or red with a large medallion in the centre. The high knot density and high class materials (wool and silk) establish Nain carpets as very high quality.
