Info about Nain Persian rugs and the Habibian signature

The small desert city of Nain, also known as Naein depending on who you ask, is located about 300 miles south of Teheran towards the center of Iran. Up until the end of 1950's, Nain was known for its wool manufactering and textile industry that supplied the wool for rug weavers in nearby Isfahan, which is one of Iran's main rug producing centers. There are several small towns that make up the greater area of Nain, but it is a small town and very close to the much bigger city of Isfahan (~100 miles) and as a result many weavers are actually located in Isfahan.

The rug weaving in Nain became much more noticeable after WW2 with the arrival of one of the most famous modern day rug weavers by the name of Habibian pictured above. Starting in the 1950's, the Habibian family became famous as one of the earliest makers of extremely fine Nain rugs and in fact his signature is still added to many of the finer Nain rugs that I discuss in detail in the video below. With nearby Isfahan being a very important rug weaving city, the Nain rugs are also heavily influenced by the design and style of the Isfahan rugs. They often share similar colors and designs, but are very different in qualities. The Isfahan rugs tend to have lots of reds and blues, whereas the Nain rugs are typically centered around the beige theme.

Another big difference between Nain and Isfahan rugs is that the high end Isfahan rugs almost always made with a silk foundation and medium pictorial Isfahan rugs are also very common, whereas Nain rugs rarely ever use a silk foundation even in their super high end qualities and pictorial Nain rugs depicting people are virtually unheard off. When it comes to qualities of Nain rugs, most are of the low to medium quality known as 12-Lah Kashmar or the standard quality 9-Lah Nain rugs with ~200-250kpsi. Please watch the video below where I explain the varies qualities in Nain rugs in much more detail and show you how you can determine the qualities of Nain rugs on your own. The next quality is the one that I offer th emost of, which is 6-Lah, also called Sheshlah, and these Nain rugs are definitely high end with 500 kpsi and more. These Nain rugs typically have lots of silk highlights throughout the design and are very fine. All Nain rugs are made with a Persian knot and while the 6-Lah Nain rugs are considered to be amongst the finest wool based Persian rugs, there are a few 4-Lah and even 3-Lah Nain carpets, but they are so extremely rare and expensive, that they are more of a collector's rug than something that you would find in stores or homes.
