Nain is a small town about 150 km east of Isfahan in central Iran. Fine carpet production is relatively new in Nain compared to other persian cities, though the quality of rugs produced in this area is one of the finest in Iran.Structurally they use soft lustrous wool, fine tight piles and very fine Persian knotting.Warps are predominately cotton ,wefts either cotton or silk ,and silk knotting is occassionally used as a highlight for some special pieces.

The most distinguishing feature of Nain carpets is the central medallion on blue and ivory ground fields with a minimum of additional colous to complete this distinctive pallette.

Nain is one of the few carpets where the modern production exceeds in quality that produced by the earlier weavers and as a result Nain carpets are exported all around the world.

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
