A favorite of many collectors, Nains are precise, delicate and can be stunningly beautiful. Its talented master weavers may take several years to complete a rug. These elegant rugs are produced in and around the city of Nain, 150 km east of the enchanted city of Isfahan.Though very similar in appearance to Isfahans, they are easily identifiable because of their distinctive color scheme and smooth, closely clipped pile. Nain rugs usually feature an overall arabesque and curvilinear floral pattern of blues against a warm beige or ivory background, with touches of greens and whites. Over 300 to 500 knots per square inch are not uncommon in Nains. Excellent grades of wool and silk are used on foundations of fine cotton or silk.
