Chobi Rugs

Chobi rugs (or choobi rugs, chobi rugs, chubi rugs, choubi rugs) were a response to the North American fashion taste that tended to modify the boldness of the traditional rugs in order to give a muted and antique look of natural wood colour that was desired by the modern fashion industry. Chobi was developed in Lahore and weaving centres were set up in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan where they were mostly produced for the North American market.
