This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. As a weaving center, Nain dates back to the 1920s. Nain rugs are known for having a primarily blue and white traditional floral pattern and almost always have a touch of silk in the design. This rug was made in the 1960s by weavers in the villages of Nain, which is in the province of Isfahan. The entire process of shearing, washing, dyeing and weaving of the rugs is done by village weavers.
Herat Oriental works with over 2,000 village weavers to create beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come.
