Pakistan is one of those countries where people customarily sit on the floor. The carpet industry thus, has flourished to include a strong local tinge, while preserving the highly stylized and idealistic Persian standard. Carpets are an economically important but miniscule part of the floor covering popularly used in Pakistan.

The Pakistani carpet weaver ties his knots with great dexterity, on upright wooden looms of traditional design. Vertical looms are used in sizes varying from five to sixty feet, with three to five weavers, working on each. The fitness of a carpet is judged by the number of knots per unit area in combination of the design, colors and quality of yarn. The firmness, thickness and appearance of the back of the carpet, are important considerations.

A distinctive style of carpet weaving, prevails in the mountainous areas of Pakistani, right from Leh (Ladakh) to Darjeeling (West Bengal).

In Himachal Pradesh, weaving is done by migrant Tibetans. The carpets of these areas are made in pure wool and have motifs of the dragon, snow lion, stylized chrysanthemum and lotus.

Many varieties of fine prayer carpets are made in Pakistani. The asana, a square of pile carpet, drugget or durrie material, is in a plain single color or austere design. It is traditionally used, while performing rituals during worship. Jute carpets, in intricate Persian designs, are woven in West Bengal.
