A Brief History of Habibian Nain Carpets

Nain is the name of a city in Iran known for manufacturing and producing handmade carpets with a combination of blue and ivory shades of color. Before the first world war this city was famous for its exquisite tailoring of rugged and traditional Iranian clothes. However, after the first wold war, the industry had collapsed due to the increasing interest of Iranians in western clothing. With experience in dealing with high-quality wool, artisans began to weave carpets in Nain. The Persian government assisted the city. It transferred weavers from the Persian city of Isfahan and established new manufacturing warehouses. By the 1950's, Nain began winning glory for its remarkable carpet centers.

It was in the mid 20 century that masters of Nain created famous cold blue-white and blue-beige carpet of their range. Typically, nainy weaving of wool (a version of wool with silk) on the basis of cotton. Most silk is used for border patterns and better "drawing" arabesques. The best rugs from Nain are considered to be those manufactured and exclusively designed by Habibian. These rugs differ highly in density. Often these rugs and carpets are made of pure silk. Carpets of Nain Habibian produced in small numbers, just a few hundred pieces a year.

Once Habibian Nains used to be considered very important carpets in the Nain family. Today, there are a lot of carpets on the market that are signed Habibian Nains but are not made by Habibian families and are for sale in the American and Canadian markets. Regular Nains mostly come in an ivory colored background with blue and beige accents. Sometimes the blue is more deeply pronounced and sometimes it is made of a lighter blue. There are however exceptions. Sometimes, these carpets come in vibrant red and vibrant green colors.
