They are fine Persian rugs. The traditional Nain pattern has a central highly detailed medallion surrounded by intricate arabesques and floral details mirroring the blue and white tiles in Mosques. The very soft woollen pile details are often highlighted in a silk. Nain is made in 4 qualities 12La, 9La, 6La and 4La with ‘La’ meaning layer in Farsi (Iranian language), the lower the number La the finer the rug.
