Nain Medallion Hand Knotted Wool & Silk Rug 155x102 cm
NAIN rugs and carpets have curvilinear patterns and mostly have a single medallion set in a blue or ivory background as those are their main colour. Ivory and light and dark blue are the main colours. You can sometimes find a NAIN rug with a red or green background. Weavers in NAIN use Oriental knots.
Oriental rug experts use a different measurement called LAA (Farsi word exclusively to define the quality of NAIN rugs. LAA means layers and refers to the number of threads forming each fringe at the end of a NAIN rug. A good quality NAIN is 9 LAA, which means you can count 9 threads on each fringe at the end of the rug. The most expensive NAIN rugs have 4 LAA, which is superfine, very valuable, and difficult to find.
