    LAHORE: A three-day exhibition of Pakistani carpets opened at Pakistan Embassy Jakarta on Monday, Embassy press section told Business Recorder through an E-mail message.

    Aambassadors from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Belarus, Serbia, Cuba, Nigeria, Russia, Syria and other diplomatic missions and business houses attended the ceremony.

    A special effort was made to display carpets made in Pakistan.

    In his inaugural remarks, Ambassador Sanaullah said that carpets symbolize luxury, comfort and aesthetic–beauty personified in weaving. Carpets which represent finer oriental and Islamic traditions constitute an important part of Pakistan exports today.

    The ambassador said that Pakistani carpets are unique, durable, well-woven and last with the owner for generations.

    Pakistani designs follow classic and traditional patterns enriched by dying techniques of the Indus valley.

    The exhibition displayed exclusive new and semi antique carpets. Special efforts were made to select carpets which were well within the range of everyone but had every possibility of becoming a priced investment in future. It was a stepping stone to launch an even bigger carpet and culture exhibition in Jakarta in the coming year.
