Q&A: Nain Rugs


Tabas Rug


I have a question.  Are your Persian nain rugs hand made?  What would a 5'5" x 8' Nain cost?

Thank you


Follow-upThanks so much for your immediate response!  Awesome!  Thanks



Hello and thanks for contacting,

Actually we do not sell rugs, we simply help educate buyers.  Generally speaking, hand knotted "Nain rugs" vary greatly in price.

Partly the reason for this is many sellers improperly advertise rugs as "Nain", although they may more appropriately be called "Tabas" rugs or other.  These often are significantly lower grade in regards to wool, knot density and sometimes are much more succeptable to color run.  Other technicalities play heavily with Nain rugs, such as the cord count in the foundation and at times, authentic signatures.

If you're interested in particular rugs and would like to receive feedback on them, please consider registering for our Oriental Rug Forum!  Membership and use is free, and there's some good people there.

Thanks for your question and all the best,

For all those interested in submitting a question to the Rug Rag Editors:  We'd be more than happy to help, please send some photographs of the reverse side of the rug very close up with a quarter placed on the knots, plus a picture of the fringe, the whole face of the rug and detail shot of the pile.  If the rug is worn, please include photographs of worn areas.  For rugs of any age, please be sure to check for dry areas, moth damage, odor, and whether or not the rug is straight/has right angles where called for.  If you have any questions about our assessment request feel free to send us an email.  Otherwise, we are looking for something similar to these images posted here
