Nain carpets

Sub menu: Habibian,

Nain carpets are very densely knotted carpets. Nain (Naein) is a city in Central Iran located east of Isfahan. Nain rug production is relative new here and began in the 20th century. Nain designs are not native local designs but Isfahan designs with new colors inspired by the desert. Light colors used in Nain carpets are signs of sun and sand.
