Near the border of the central desert and along the road from Esfahan to Yazd is the city of Nain, famous for its fabulous and splendid rugs. One of the special features of Nain carpets is the insistence of the dyers to use cool colours. Their preference is white, dark blue, light blue, beige and sometimes red. The dimension of the Nain rugs vary from the smallest sizes (Poshti)up to larger sizes. Warp and weft are made of cotton, the pile is made of wool, they normally use the silk around the motifs to make the design outstanding. The designs often used in Nain carpets are overall Shah-Abbasi animal with multiple antlers, multiple armlets, (Bazu-bandi), Shah-Abbasi medallion and corner.
