About Us

Empire Carpets is an importer and whole sellers of hand made Pakistani and Turkish carpets  based in wales ( Swansea ) and established in 2013.

My grand father Syed Mubarak shah Bukhari started this business in Srinager, Kashmir District Badgam in 1880. A few years later he moved to Amritsar, India and continued the carpet business. After the partition of India in 1947 my grand father moved to Lahore Pakistan and continued along side my uncle, cousins and brothers. Syed Manzoor Bukhari became the Secretary General of Pakistan Carpets Association in 1966.

At the age of 12  I got involved in the business with my father Syed Suleman Shah Bukhari while continuing my studies. Now my son Syed Bilal Shah Bukhari the 4th generation to continue.

This is a family business and our total focus is on providing customers best quality hand made Pakistani  and Turkish carpets. We want to bring taste of Pakistani culture in your life and home.


We offer a wide range of hand made carpets to meet the growing demand of customers in UK.
