NAME : Nain Persian Rug Signed By Master Weaver- Wool and Silk
Nain is a town 150km to the east of Isfahan in central Iran. It is relatively new to the carpet world compared to ancient weaving centres such as Isfahan & Yazd. Although it started out producing Isfahan carpets, in the mid 1930s Nain began developing its own style. Very fine and precise designs were created due to the high quality of the workshops in the area. Fathollah Habibian (1903-1995) ran one of the most famous Nain workshops and widely regarded as the father of Nain rugs. He is responsible for the design and weaving of some of the worlds finest Nains.
Nain rugs usually have a cotton foundation with a very soft wool or wool and silk pile. Quality is measured not only in knots per square inch (KPSI) which averages about 300 but also in LAA. LAA is a FARSI term referring to the number of threads that make up each fringe. A LAA of 9 is considered a good quality rug ( yet is the lowest quality of true Nains) while a LAA of 4 the best. LAA is related to KPSI as it allows tighter knotting.
