Place of origin
Contemporary aesthetics meets oriental tradition: we were inspired by the traditional pattern of Persian Nain rugs when making this Neo Nain rug.
Nain is one of the best known rug provenances (origin, source) of Iran. The city of Nain is located to the northwest of Isfahan and has a centuries-old knotting tradition. The pattern of Nain rugs with their floral tendrils is unmistakable and in a way an archetype of classic Persian rugs.
We have modified the traditional pattern templates and, in particular, we have completely rearranged the color scheme. The result is a fusion of traditional oriental rug design and modern European aesthetics. Through our Neo Nain rugs, we try to cater to the trends of European interior design, and in doing so, we playfully go around the guidelines of traditional rug knotting.
The luxuriant flower motifs of this Neo Nain are elegant and varied. The graceful vegetative symbols representing flowers, leaves and branches are artfully intertwined.
The repeating elements in the center field of this Neo Nain rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.
Some areas of the design have a higher pile than other parts of this rug. The patterns of modern rugs tend to be simpler and more abstract. The play with different pile heights is new and has replaced more elaborate and bold patterns. As a result of the two-dimensional highlighting of the pattern, the rug does not look boring at all. This accentuation is extraordinary and has a unique effect.
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a beautiful contrast to the center.
The background of this Neo Nain is gray. The border features gray, yellow and turquoise.
The pile of this Neo Nain is made of a durable mixture of wool and viscose. Viscose also acetate silk or rayon is generally obtained from the natural product of cellulose, in other words from the raw material, wood. In India the cellulose mass is obtained from bamboo. In an elaborate process, the pulpy cellulose is pulled into a continuous textile yarn. This is why viscose is also referred to as the continuous filament yarn. Because of the silky sheen of the yarn, viscose obtained from bamboo is also called "Bamboo Silk". The colloquially used designation "artificial silk" is not permitted under the German Textile Labelling Act TKG. The weft and warp threads of this Neo Nain are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
