Nain Carpets : Nain Carpets: Nain is a small city in central Iran, near the famous city of Isfahan. Before the start of the 20th century, it was known for producing high quality handmade woolen fabrics. However, due to the decline of the town's business activity, they commissioned weavers from Esfahan to weave handmade carpets. They created their own style using bright, creamy colors and shades of blue or red with a large medallion in the centre. The high knot density and high class materials (wool and silk) establish Nain as very high quality carpets. They are often woven in areas around the city Nain, not necessarily in the city itself. The familiar pattern of Shah Abbas have been successfully used in the Nain carpets. The warp in these carpets is typically of cotton. The warp consists of a number of threads that are referred to as "La". Fine woven Nain have 4 threads (4La) or 6 strings (6La). Today, the city Nain produces only very stylish 4s or 6s of quality La. 9 and 12 La are produced mostly in Khorasan, i.e. Kashmar and Mashhad. A Famous house in town Carpet Nain is the house of Habibian. The carpets woven in their workshops are the best and most sought after carpets in the world.

Classic Carpets: Carpets that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by carpet designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these carpets, though there may be slight variations in weaving.

Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the carpet. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the carpets. Examples
