Pakistan is located in central Asia, near India, Afghanistan and Iran.
Weaving handmade rugs is a proud tradition of Pakistan, just like India, as when the state seceded, a large number of renowned artisans moved and began to work in Pakistan.
Two of the most important cities in the hand-woven rug market today, are “Lahore” and “Karachi”.
Woven in both of these cities, is the popular and dear to all Bukhara, in which the style is the same as with the handmade Turkmenistan Bukhara. The “gol” (octagonal or diamond-shaped flower with slight rounded peaks) is also a key motif in this quality and it is placed in rows, so as to cover the whole rug until the border.
The colors most commonly used are the classic deep red and also, blue, black, beige and gold.
The weaving of the rug uses soft Australian wool of excellent quality; the careful processing gives the rug a silky and smooth texture.
The dyes are plant-based, the knots are dense, the warp and weft are cotton and silk, features that make Pakistani Bukhara very durable and even more affordable than the Turkmen Bukhara.
Pakistani Bukhara rugs are an excellent choice for the lovers of timless Bukhara, who desired a product that is excellent aesthetically, handmade and more affordable.
