Nain 6 lana - Carpet - 293 cm - 206 cm
Wool and silk on cotton - Iran - Late 20th century

Nain is a small town 150 km from Isfahan, on the road to Kirman. Despite its small size and its recent entry in the carpet-making sector (the earliest Nain rugs date back to 1930), Nain has become one of the most renowned and celebrated names in the industry.
This town's carpets are highly rated and have an excellent reputation. Both the material and the manufacture are first class, and the knot density is very high, often a million knots per square metre. The most exclusive material has been used to make this rug (wool on silk and with silk used for the warp as well as for the weft and pile).

The knotting is always very dense, shaven very short and with an extremely detailed pattern and compact pile. The most famous examples of these techniques are Persian carpets.

Dimensions: 291 x 206 cm
Total number of knots: approx. 4,850,000
