The manufacturing of carpets in Pakistan began in the same way as in India and when the country was separated from India most of the weavers, which were muslims, moved to the Pakistanian side. Most of them found jobs in Lahore and Karachi, and at the same time the government began to support the import of quality yarn.
 
In Pakistan, carpets are manufactured nowadays with fine Australian wool yarn making these carpets very similar to silk carpets. Carpets with a high knot density provides strong durability at a lower price than its Persian parallels.
