The design of this rug is reminiscent of rugs from the city of Isfahan with circular branches that go around the field. This Nain has a beautiful floral design set in a rich navy blue field color with a cream color border. The design colors in the field include navy blue, French blue, burgundy, brown, and caramel. The corner spandrels are in French blue with cream color designs. The rug has a wool pile with a cotton foundation and silk highlights that shimmer under light.
