About The Piece

Nain is a small town some 70 Km. away from the historical city
of Isfahan where they adopted the art of carpet weaving around
the turn of the century.
They are regarded as some of the finest quality using fine wool
and silk, woven onto very fine cotton warp and weft.
One can distinguish how fine the Nain carpets are by counting
the number of layers in a thread in one of the fringes of the
carpet . The quality is classified as 6La and 9La, where "La" in
farsi( Iranian language) means layer. The lower the number the
finer and higher density the knots .
The designs are generally taken from the beautiful blue and
white tiled mosques. Silk is often used in the outlines to give a
more luxurious and to enhance the decoration.
