Nails are made in workshop and master workshop only.

The central Persian town of Nain was renowned as a weaving centre for high quality and costly woollen cloth; when this craft fell into decline around the turn of the century, rug weavers were imported from Isfahan, and by mid-century the town had established itself as one of the foremost carpet-weaving centres in the world.

In appearance, quality and structure, Nain rugs are very similar to Isfahans, but they tend to contain more bird and animal motifs in their infill decorations and the majority of their designs are outlined in silk.

Nains are made in most sizes, including carpets, but medium and large-size rugs are most common. The most important and influential master weaver is Habibian. Items from his workshop are among the finest contemporary rugs produced in Persia. Master workshop rugs are often made in much larger sizes than standard workshop items, but they usually employ a similar range of designs. Most Nain are made out of wool or wool and silk, some rare Nains are made entirely out of silk.
