Among the finest carpets in the world, the word Nain is sometimes used in Iran as a synonym for fine. These elegant carpets are produced in and around the city of Nain, some 60 miles east of the enchanted city of Isfahan. A favourite of many collectors, Nains are precise, delicate and stunningly beautiful. Colours of a Nain carpet are mostly beige and blue, with stunning silken highlights. The blues can vary from the deepest midnight to the palest sky, with royals and spectacular turquoises in between. Typical details include curvilinear vines with forked leaves, Shah Abbas flowers, birds and animals, and regal borders. Many of the finer pieces will be signed by the master weaver who created the piece. A Nain rug is truly a rare and precious treasure, highly sought after by art and rug lovers alike.
Nains are magnificently hand-woven by talented master weavers who may take several years to complete a single rug. Though very similar in appearance to Isfahan rugs, they are easily identifiable and singled out because of their distinctive colour scheme and smooth, closely clipped pile. Over 300 to 500 knots per square inch (50-60 Raj) are not uncommon in Nains. Excellent grades of wool and silk are used exclusively on a foundation of fine cotton or silk. The Nain rug is a precious treasure that will always bring elegance to any room and whose beauty will forever remain.
IMPORTANT TIP: We recommend that an anti-slip pad such as Total Grip is used underneath rugs to prevent slippage between the rug and the surface it is placed on.
Please note: Allow for a slight variation of colours depending on monitor settings.
