Carpet of persian Persian Dwarf Wool & Silk 1980
The carpet of Nain is a type of Persian rug. The carpet of Nain owes its existence to the decline of weaving. The importation of Western fabrics, which had thwarted the sale of fabrics, and the weavers of Nain, renowned for the quality of the threads of their fabrics, began to manufacture carpets which became excellent in a few years. The decor of the Nain is very similar to that of the carpet of Esfahan. The field is also decorated with tight interlacing of flowering branches, but the central medallion is more rare. Many carpets have vegetable and animal motifs. The border is composed of a central strip and two secondary bands, which can also be framed by two narrow strips. The colors are characteristic: beige, ivory and white, used on a background either light green or blue. Nain carpets are often accompanied by a complementary denomination: La. La is a Farsi word which means "layer"; It particularly designates the number of layers of yarns used in a Nain carpet, making it possible to determine the degree of quality thereof.
