About the founder
Usman Ashraf is a well known name in the rug industry throughout the world. With no family background or work experience in the field he was able to start from scratch, learn the trade, expand horizons, and eventually create one of the best known and distinguished rug businesses in Pakistan.
Usman Ashraf started his small shop trading basic carpets locally and supplying to big exporters of the day. Little by little, business expanded and with the onset of the 80s Usman Carpet House was able to start exporting independently. At the time Usman Carpet House became the biggest supplier of Pakistani rugs to the legendary OCM of London. The 90s brought on an influx of Afghan refugees and with it the ‘Chobi’ rug. Usman Carpet House became a pioneer in this new production, setting new standards of colours, designs and delivery. The period saw a rapid expansion of the company, eventually becoming a dominant name in the trade.In the 2000s Usman Carpet House started preparing for the future, by expanding into new facilities, investing in new technology for administration and design and further expanding into new product lines and markets.
The company operates with the philosophy of establishing friendly partnerships with all clients, regardless of their buying capacity or size. We treat each client and their requirements like our own, operating with the mindset that our client’s success is our own success.
