The traditional crafts and craft traditions in Pakistan often transcend boundaries - techniques, practices and customs having evolved as a result of an amalgam and synthesis of cultures and influences.

The Mughal aesthetic and the Islamic art form, with its emphasis on perfect synchronization, balance and order depicted through floral and geometric designs is predominant in Pakistan. It can be seen in all art forms from architecture to textiles, and continues to form the basis of design in urban Pakistan, today.
