IMPOSSIBLY ELEGANT AND BEAUTIFUL NAIN PERSIAN RUGS
Nain’s are the ne plus ultra of vintage Persian rugs. Ultra-fine. Ultra-velvety (from Kurk wool). Ultra-expensive. Ultra-Persian in style. Nain is in central Persia and has been weaving top quality pieces since the 1930’s. Five hundred, 600 or even more knots per square inch are common. Any pattern can be created, but the weavers stick mostly to elaborate traditional renditions of medallions, arabesques and palmettes. The color range of any rug is wide and the dyes are perfectly applied. Random variation has no place in the Nain aesthetic. Nain rugs are probably the most exquisite of modern Persian rugs.
