Nain 60′ x 100′ Six Law

The Isfahan and Nain rugs are named after their respective cities.  The two cities have a very short distance of separation and share the reputation of creating the world’s most famous Persian rugs.  Both cities began their weaving with use of vegetable dyes and eventually switching to synthetic.
The city of Isfahan flourished during the 16th century under Shah Abbas the Great.  Isfahan is notorious for using a silk foundation in their weaving as compared to Nain which uses a cotton foundation.  Isfahan has been weaving their masterpieces for centuries while Nain has only decades of experience
