Classic handmade antique type rug Nain, woven from wool and silk. It is a high quality carpet with a density 360000 knots / m2.
The picturesque town of Nain is located on the western edge of the Dasht-e-Kawir Desert, 200 km east of Isfahan. Nain rugs are very popular. Both the material and the design of the carpets are first-class, often with a density of knots exceeding one million knots per square meter. More exclusive carpets are most often made of fine wool woven into a silk warp. Pure silk carpets are not unique.
The pattern often contains a central medallion, arabesques or flower motifs. The resemblance to Isfahan carpets is very striking. One of the rarer types of Nain rugs is known as Nain Tuteshk.
Nain carpets are often referred to as follows: 4La, 6La, 9La, etc. "La" means Persian layer. It is a quality label that refers to the number of layers of yarn that contains one warp thread. The lower the number, the finer and tighter the carpet is woven. The number of layers can be checked by counting the tufts on the carpet; with three pairs of threads in one bunch, it is Nain 6La.a.
