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