Although it started out producing Isfahan carpets, in the mid-1930s Nain began developing its own style. Because carpet weavers from Nain worked with thinner wools, they began to weave rugs of much higher quality. Very fine and precise designs were created due to the high quality of the workshops in the area. Actually weaving carpets, a fine art, began in Na’in about the time of World War II.
