Square 'Habibian' Nain with silk highlights

Circa 1970
310 × 310 cm 10’2” x 10’2”


This rare Nain is from the workshop of the master weaver Habibian, highly regarded for both quality and designs. This particular piece is an unusual square size, repeating boteh design and extremely finely woven. There are also silk highlights throughout.  A remarkable fine, elegant carpet which would have taken 3 years to weave.  This exceptional Nain carpet was woven around 1970.

. . .

The majority of Nain carpets have a central medallion unlike this piece and are usually woven with the main colours being cream or off white together with blues of various hues. The designs are all floral, take note of the vines growing throughout the field.  The green dye in the boteh design is a wonderful dye and enhances the charm of this piece.
