Nain is the name of a town in central Iran with a culture of rug weaving that goes back to 1930s. The earlier Nains were called Tudeshg, with a different construction than the modern Nains.

Nain rugs though made very finely, some with silk foundation, are not considered as antique rugs, and even though it needs a lot of skill to produce such rugs, Nains are not considered as work of art by many scholars.
