The characteristics of genuine Nain rugs
Nain rugs are considered very noble Persian rugs and are characterized by the finest quality. Their pile is moderately high. Always they are designated only with complete quality classification. Thus, a Nain 12la differs significantly in quality from that of a Nain 4la. "La" translated from Persian means layer, the number presented indicates the exact number of threads that form a common warp. The smaller this number, the thinner and finer the warp thread and the more precious and valuable the Nain rug. The number of threads can be checked by the fringes, so three pairs of threads indicate a 6la rug.
The Nain rug value depends on the quality classification - the number of knots per square meter varies accordingly. While a Nain 12la has around 200,000 knots, a Nain 6la already has a number of 500,000 to 900,000 knots. Again, the Nain 4la with a knotting density of more than 1,000,000 knots is the noblest and most valuable variety. Since such valuable Nain rugs are hardly ever knotted nowadays, they are now very rare and therefore real collector's items. The value of a Nain rug made of pure silk increases accordingly.

About the processing of noble Nain rugs
Traditionally manufactured Nain rugs are hand-knotted and are created in vertical frames, into which the vertical warp threads and the horizontal weft threads are inserted. Depending on the desired quality, these are made of cotton yarn or silk. The knots are then placed - according to the pattern - around the warp and weft. The production of such traditional Nain rugs requires wool yarn of the highest quality. Silk inclusions provide a particularly beautiful sheen. The production of these high-quality rugs is considered extremely laborious. It is not uncommon for months, if not years, to pass before completion.
Genuine Nain rugs are characterized by a particularly beautiful luster. This is the result of a special dyeing of the yarn. Only natural dyes obtained from plant, mineral, and insect pigments are used for coloring. For example, the blue typical of Nain rugs comes from the indigo plant. The colors are mixed according to traditional recipes.
The noble Nain Persian rugs come from the factories of the Persian oasis city of Nain. Traditionally, they tend to be in subtle shades of white, beige, and blue. A medallion is usually incorporated in the center, surrounded by floral patterns and arabesques. rugs without medallions are characterized by imaginative floral, tendril, and floral drawings.

The right care for your Nain rug
To preserve the beauty of your Nain rug in the long run, a manageable amount of care is necessary. Periodically, it should be vacuumed in the direction of the pile to remove dust and dirt. The same goes for the back. However, daily vacuuming is not necessary. To protect the pile, the vacuum cleaner should not be set to the highest level.
Liquids and small stains can be easily removed with the help of lint-free wool cloth and warm water. Here you should be careful to dab only to avoid rubbing in deeper layers. By the way, the fact that a Nain rug fades over time is a completely normal process. Sometimes the natural wear and tear make your rug look even more beautiful.
