When the war in Afghanistan started, many Afghan weavers fled to Khorassan, and started adapting their skills to the local demand. Lower wages, new patterns and finer weaving meant a hard competition for the locals and the Iranian government encouraged the return of the Afghans to their country. Nevertheless, it is to be considered as a very specific influence and contribution to the local market.
