Woven by skilled artisans, Persian Nain rugs are highly sought after. They are made with beautiful muted colors, predominantly beige and navy. Light blue, burgundy, and green are used occasionally. They are woven using the Persian knot. Iranian Nains usually have a cotton warp, however, sometimes silk warps are used. The pile is characteristically wool, but weavers may use silk or accent with silk. A featured characteristic is a central medallion, which is at times adorned with floral motifs and animals, mostly birds.
The standard used to determine the quality of a Nain rug is the measurement of LAA, the number of threads forming each fringe at the end of the rug. They are exquisitely woven with the Persian knot, with an average of 500 knots per square inch. The higher the knots per square inch and the lower the LAA, the higher the quality and the price of a Nain rug is.
Iranian Nain rugs are created in Iran in the town of Nain or in nearby areas. Style and design of the Nains is heavily influenced by the Isfahan weavers, but they are easily distinguishable by the colors used. Elegant and understated, the Persian Nain rug is highly desirable and a testament to the craftsmanship of the area.
This rug has a dense, soft pile, and excellent quality, to ensure that you will enjoy the look and feel of your rug for years to come .
