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 pattern, inspired by classical oriental embellishments, gives the impression that this hand-knotted rug has a long history. The pattern looks as if it has been washed out or faded and therefore almost abstract. In fact, this Neo Nain is of course new and part of the latest generation of contemporary rug designs. It is a bridge between modern designs and interiors and classic oriental motifs. The pattern is subtle yet present.
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 embellished edging (border) forms a beautiful contrast to the center and creates a transition at the edge of the rug.
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 background of this Neo Nain is gray beige. The colors blue gray and gray beige dominate the overall impression. The border is held in similar colors as the rest of the rug.
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.
