Signed By Master Weaver Habibian.
Nain is a town 150km to the east of Isfahan, in central Iran. It is relatively new to the carpet world, compared to ancient weaving centres such as, Isfahan and Yazd. Although it started out producing Isfahan carpets in the mid 1930s, Nain began developing its own style. Very fine and precise designs were created, due to the high quality of the workshops in the area. Fathollah Habibian (1903-1995) ran one of the most famous Nain workshops, and is widely regarded as the father of Nain rugs. He is responsible for the design and weaving of some of the worlds finest Nains.
Nain rugs usually have a cotton foundation with very soft wool or wool and silk piles. Quality is measured not only in knots per square inch (KPSI), which averages about 300 but also in LAA. LAA is a Farsi term, referring to the number of threads that make up each fringe
