Jaldar design originated in Pakistan with inspiration from traditional Sarouk and Yamud designs. A typical Jaldar design is often in silk and wool with similar Gul motifs, although more elongated and diamond-shaped, to a Bokhara rug repeated in rows. They are famous for their thick wool pile and beautiful sheen, and the feel of the wool is soft and velvety, with a very dense, hand-knotted pile. Jaldar rugs are normally distinguished by their characteristic red to red-brown background color, with white, beige, black and blue are other colors commonly used. The knot counts range from 144 to 242 knots per square inch.
