Size: 771x475cm

This is a Persian Nain rug. Nain is a town 150km to the east of Isfahan in central Iran. Very fine and precise designs were created due to the high quality of the workshops in the area. Nain rugs have a cotton foundation with a very soft wool or wool & silk pule. The workmanship is of the highest class and the knot density is also high (often more than one million knots per square meter). 

Sandie is special as she is a 'distressed' Nain. She has being overdyed -  a unique process of colour neutralisation before being overdyed in exciting new colours. Only naturally dyed carpets with natural wool fibres can be used to get the most out of this effect. 

Nain rugs have three knot types: 4La, 6La and 9La. In Farsi, the "La" translates to "Layer". This numbering helps decide the quality of a Nain rug - referring to the number of layers of threads that have been used in every warp-thread when weaving the rug. The lower the number the finer and higher density the knots the carpet has.
