More about the provenance Nain | Iran
This is a real Nain and not a rug with Nain design made in another part of Iran. Nain is located in Central Iran and is the main town of the Nain district. The city is amongst other things proud of a mosque called "Madjed Djomeh" from the 10th century. Nain rugs are of remarkable fineness and therefore have sharply distinguished and clear patterns, you might call them luxury editions of the Persian rugs. The beautiful combinations of white and light blue are characteristic for Nain carpets. They are often traded in Isfahan. The Persian knot is used making them as opposed to the more spread Turkish knot which is more often used with Persian rugs.
