Pakistan Rugs

Pakistan became an independent country since the end of the Second World War. consequently, Pakistan rugs share much of its cultural and rug-making heritage with India. After the Partition (1947), the government provided massive subsidies to the rug-making industry and introduced modern methods of production and organisation. The industry was revialised since the 1960s. 

Pakistani rugs can be divided into two broad categories. Turkoman, usually gul (Bokhara), schemes, usually referrred to as Mor Bokharas. Then those that copy Persian workshop designs, often marketed as Mori Kashans.
