Nain Rugs

JessBy Jessica Allan




Nain rugs are a type of Persian rug woven in the central region of Iran. They are similar in design to Isfahan rugs although it was not until the 1930's that Nains began to be made. A common design includes a large central medallion surrounded by detailed, curvilinear arabesques and floral motifs. They typically feature color schemes of beige, ivory and blue. They are woven with high quality materials including wool or silk woven on a cotton or silk foundation. If wool is used for the pile, silk may be used to highlight certain aspects of the design. Persian knots are used in Nains.
