Nain Rugs are constructed using the Persian knot and typically have between 300 and 700 knots per inch. The pile is usually very high quality wool, clipped short, and silk is often used as highlighting for detail in the design. Some pieces are made entirely of silk. Nain rugs are often made in the areas surrounding the town of Nain.
Nain rugs do exhibit a style of their own, often using highlighting of blue on cream or ivory backgrounds. Depending on the rug's quality, the warp and weft will be either silk or cotton, though cotton is most commonly employed.
Varying levels of ply are referred to as "la", with lower numbers meaning finer quality. Nowadays, Nain itself mostly produces very fine 4 or 6 La quality. Other 9 La and 12 La are produced mostly in the Khorasan region i.e. Kashmar, Mashhad.
