The saw was invented in the Indus valley some 5000 years ago, starting the evolution of the indigenous carpenter's skills. The successive waves of invaders, Aryans  1700 B.C., Achaemenids of Persia 516 B.C., Greeks 326 B.C., left lasting impressions on furniture and architecture. Aryans introduced wooden stools, benches and sandals. Achaemenids brought Mesopotamian motifs in stone and wood. Greek settlers designed chests, wardrobes, settees, cabinets and chairs.

The Northern areas of the Indian sub-continent which is today's Pakistan became a melting pot of civilizations. The interaction of ideas culminated in the style and design in woodcraft and architecture which survived for a long time.

The presence of both soft wood ( Cedar & Pine) and hard wood (Shesham & Walnut) facilitated the carpenters to produce not only the furniture but also the household utensils like cooking pots, plates, goblets and spoons. Houses of the nobility were built of wood with intricately carved beams, pillars, windows and doors apart from producing thrones, couches, bedsteads, stools, writing desks, low chairs, chests and cabinets to satisfy the taste of each client and according to the requirement of each room.

Much of what the great masters produced has perished since long but still a large treasure is hidden in remote areas of Pakistan.

Heritage is dedicated to the collection, restoration and export of these valuable items of wooden art all over the world.
