Nain Carpet

Nain is located in Isfahan province, and is one of the regions that have very elegant carpets. Of course, in Nain, before the carpet weaving, the people of this city wove cloak using very fine camel wool, which over time gave way to carpet weaving, and weaving a cloak fell from popularity. Earlier, There was no weaving carpets boom in Nain, until a man named Mirza Jalal Pirzad, who was a school teacher, decided many students who are not able to continue their studies due to family circumstances and the economy, become familiar with this Iranian art, and in this respect, work in this field. The school teacher, about the year 1300, with two of those who were proficient on the carpet weaving and its principles, were held the training classes, and took all their expenses. He was a caring and Frost person, who had a significant impact on the Nain carpet history, also, many young girls because of their enormous interest in the craft began working in this field and therefore, the first carpet weaving workshop opened in Nain.

In the beginning, due to the lack of using specific plans, Isfahan and other areas designs were used, over time, many well-known designers, like Habibian brothers, inspired by desert and dry nature of Nain, as well as architecture and monuments historic, ventured to design and create their unique designs. Habibian family, because they had a great reputation in this field, exported to domestic and foreign markets and sold many high qualities of silk carpets from the workshop Habibian with Habibian-Nain brand. It should be noted that, Nain carpets in Iran in the past were considered as the most fine-textured carpets and very popular in the world.

Some of the features of Nain carpets:
1. The use of4-ply, 6-ply, 9-ply fine yarn which its 4-ply yarn is used in very fine carpets (generally Nain carpets are known for its great elegance)
2. The use of medallion–Corner design and Palmette flower design, Arabesque, architecture, Prayer-nich design, Hunting design, Paisely design, etc. Despite the designs listed, the medallion–Corner design was used more than others.
3. Using bright colors like cream or beige and dark colors of dark blue and dark blue that is specific Nain carpets. As well as other colors such as red, dark red, blue, indigo, gray and khaki.
4. The carpets are woven with Persian knots, and the two wefts were used.
5. Nain carpets polishing were done during weaving.
6. Use silk yarns with light color which gives the outstanding appearance to the carpet.
7. The use of vegetable dyes which have high brightness and great stability.
8. Nain carpets, due to the delicacy and short pile, are less used for parts of the house in which traffic is high, and are used more as ornate.

Unfortunately, we should say that, given the heavy costs of high quality raw materials to experienced weavers wages, as well as young and inexperienced workforce in the weaving of the Nain carpets, and separation of limited colors used in this type of carpet, We are faced with the loss of quality in the Nain famous carpets.
