Nain: The famous city of Nain, is located at the centre of Persia (Iran), between the cities of Isfahan and of Yazd and it is well-known for its production of high quality and really refined handmade carpets. This particular type of carpet, is also very popular in Europe and it is characterized by a rich floral design in spirals and arabesques, which is spread all over the surface of the carpet. The central part of the rug is often decorated with a floral medallion and other motifs, inspired by the natural world, while the dominant colors are blue and ivory. The materials used by manufacturers are basically wool, or a combination of wool and silk on a woolen, silk or cotton warp. Most of Nain carpets consist of 500.000 up to 1.000.000 knots per square meter, an element that divides the Nain carpets into 3 categories: 4La, 6La, 9La, where ‘La’ in Farsi (persian language) means layer. The less ‘las’ the more refined and expensive a Nain carpet is.
