 NAIN Carpet Properties:

Visibility: NAIN rugs and carpets have curvilinear patterns. They are among the best in the world. The unique characteristic of NAIN rugs and carpets is their single medallion set in a blue or ivory background.

Quality: NAIN rugs and carpets vary. Newer ones are extremely good, although NAIN does not have long history in the carpet industry. Due to the considerable demand for NAIN rugs and carpets, there are many Indian and Pakistani imitations on the market. Unfortunately, some dealers are selling them as real NAIN. One of the most famous master weavers in NAIN is HABIBIAN. It is very hard to find real HABIBIAN carpets because of the high demand. Older NAIN rugs and carpets are also hard to find.

Size & Shapes: NAIN carpets come in different sizes, but the majority of them are mid-size (4 x 6 to 8 x 10 feet). You can also find large rugs up to 10 x 18 feet.

Color: Ivory and light and dark blue are the main colors. You can hardly find a NAIN rug or carpet with a red background.

Texture: Soft wool; thin, tight pile.

Foundation: Warp is mostly cotton; weft is either silk or wool.

Knots: Weavers in NAIN use Persian knots. Persian rug experts use a different measurement called LAA (Farsi word [Official language in IRAN]) 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. The LAA number is an indication of price:

as LAA numbers decrease, the price of NAIN rugs increases.

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. The quality of the carpet also depends upon the number of knots, which varies, but averages from around 120 KPSI (30 RAJ) up to 842 KPSI (80 RAJ).

Price: NAIN carpets are among the finest quality carpets, so expect to pay $7-$30 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from NAIN. Keep in mind that, as a general rule, the higher the KPSI and the lower the LAA, the greater is the price.Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value Persian Oriental Rugs Value

NAIN Historical Masque
NAIN is a small town about 150 km east of ISFAHAN, in the great desert in central Iran. Carpet production is new in NAIN in comparison with cities such as YAZD, ISFAHAN, KASHAN and SHIRAZ. NAIN was a center of fine textiles before WWII, but shifted to manufacturing carpets and rugs after the war. The majority of carpets and rugs produced in NAIN are exported all around the world.
