Nain rugs are often made in the areas surrounding the Nain town, not necessarily the town itself. Nain is a small town in the centre of Persia, very close to the famous city of Esfahan. Nain utilize the Shah Abbas design and make use of flowing design such as flowers and tendrils.
Nain rugs are constructed using the Persian knot and can be between 300 and 700 knots per inch. The pile is usually very high quality wool, clipped short and silk is most usually used as highlighting for parts of the detailing in the design. Some pieces are made entirely of silk. Nowadays Nain itself only produces very fine 4 or 6 La quality. Nain rugs that were once made for the Emperor of Persia can turn any home into a palace.
These hand knotted carpets are most often made by wool, but can also be found in silk and cotton. Bring a soft kiss of the old Eastern empire to your home; Nain rugs are easy to identify and will add royal elegance to any home. FREE DELIVERY ON NAIN RUGS within UK mainland.
