A Persian woolwork carpet from Nain


Stock No.15259

A fine twentieth century Nain woolwork carpet. Nain is a town east of Isfahan in what was once Persia and now Iran. It had for centuries been known for making cloaks with camel's wool, but in the early twentieth century used their fine woolwork skills to make rugs, often using cool colours, and elaborate geometric or floral designs. Nain carpets are made in such a way that the warp and weft are made of cotton, the pile made of wool and silk to make the motifs stand out.

Iranian, mid 20th century.
