Nain city ( also spelled Naeen ) with 35,000 sq. km. area, is located at 130 km.
distance to the east of Isfahan city and 320 km. to the south east of Tehran. It is
located in the central plateau of Iran, in Isfahan Province. The climate of Nain is hot
and dry. This city has many famous villages and wells.

The historical city of Nain has old antiquity and is a relic of pre-Islamic era. In
geography books belonging to the 1st Islamic century, e.g., `Hodudol Alam` (372
AH.) there are some notes revealing the name with some characteristics and
features of this city. The most important historical relic of Naein is `Narenj` or `Narin`
castle. The native architecture as well as the way of living of this desert community
is very interesting and astonishing.

The city of Nain is famous in the world for its magnificent rugs. The history of fine
woolen men's cloak and cloth making dates back to centuries, but carpet making is
relatively new and less than a century old. All the
Nain rugs have asymmetrical (
Persian ) knots, wool pile and cotton warps. They are closely clipped for better look.
In some instances silk warps are used. In higher and finer knotted rugs, kork (baby
lamb wool) is used for pile. Using touch of silk around the flowers and arabesques is
common. It is not unusual to see
Nain rugs with more than 500 knots per square
inch. Making very big
Nain rugs especially for Arab customers is a common practice
in Nain.

Master artist Habibian who died few years ago at the age of 90 was one of the
pioneers of
Nain rugs. His carpets had his signature and many producers now a
days use his signature on their carpets and this has become a controversy over
Nain carpets in the past several years. Of course, when you want to buy a Persian
Nain rug, you should not be obsessed with the mere signature as the quality of the
rug, the balance in the design, the consistency of the knots are few more important
factors than the signature itself.
