Origin of Transitional Rugs

The initial weaving of transitional rugs began in Afghanistan with Afghans introducing the Chobi style of transitional rugs. Thus Afghans were the originators of these rugs. However, eventually the transitional rug industry sought its place across the borders of Afghanistan – that is, in Pakistan. Pakistani weavers approached this design with great interest and soon Pakistani businessmen were investing in the production of transitional rugs since the market seemed promising. Many Afghan immigrants in Pakistan also took up the occupation after crossing the borders which allowed the weavers to bring that original Afghan skill into the Pakistani market of transitional rugs.
