Genuine Nain Persian rug with an unusual Isfahan Design.
This Nain Persian rug features one of the most unique designs that I have offered and is literally the missing link between the Nain and Isfahan rugs.
The city of Nain is near the regional center of Isfahan, which is why the Isfahan and Nain rugs share many of the same designs and colors. What sets this Nain rug apart is that it is literally an Isfahan inspired Nain rug with everything that an Isfahan rug has except for the foundation, which is cotton instead of silk. High end Isfahan rugs with this quality are almost always made with a silk foundation and the fact that this piece has a cotton foundation made us take a second look at it when we purchased this rug. Everthing from the colors in the border, the looks of the signature and the overall feel screams Isfahan, but it was made in Nain and features a fine 6-Lah quality. It is simply a remarkable Nain rug and as someone who looks at fine rugs all day I immediately took a liking to it as I always like to see new ideas and conceptions. The light gray and lack of bold colors make this Nain rug a refreshing exception to the rule and combined with the design make it suitable for an open area or for under a table.
