About the object
A very fine and beautiful Nain Tudeshk rug with silk highlights woven around 1920-1930 these rugs are very highly regarded for both their quality and designs. This exceptional workshop rug would have been designed by a master weaver on paper (called a cartoon) which would be alongside the loom to aid the weavers. A beautiful rich red ground colour rug with elaborate intricate floral motifs and scrolling leaves in pale blue. In excellent original condition with a fine wool pile which is high all over and both fringes at the ends are original too.
Nain is a town 150km to the east of Isfahan in central Iran; it is relatively new to the carpet world compared to ancient weaving centres such as Kashan, Isfahan and Yazd. Although it started out producing Isfahan carpets, in the mid 1930s Nain began developing its own style. Very fine and precise designs were created due to the high quality of the workshops in the area. Tudeshk Nain rugs were earlier finer examples using the best wool and materials.
