BALOUCH Rugs Properties:

Visibility: The most dominant feature of BALUCH carpets is a pattern formed by the repetition of highly stylized camel's foot- or pear-shaped medallions surrounded on all sides by geometric borders. The result is a very geometric and intricate design that borrows largely from TURKMEN style, especially in the use of the "gul" motif.

Quality: BALUCH rugs are of excellent quality. They last for many years.

Size & Shapes: BALUCH rugs are usually small (2 x 3 to 4 x 6 feet). Larger sizes exist, but are hard to find. Finished rugs are nearly square.

Color: Dark red or blue contrasted with splashes of white, yellow and orange. Powerful blues predominate, with ivory as a contrasting color.

Texture: Soft wool, thin, tight pile.

Foundation: The majority of BALUCH rugs comes from two areas:

  • The Taimani Tribe in Afghanistan
  • The Baluch Tribes from IRAN
BALUCH rugs from IRAN have white cotton or grey wool foundations. Goat hair is also a common warp material in many BALUCH rugs. BALUCH rugs are made of soft wool, are loosely woven, and are colored with corrosive black/brown dyes.

Knots: BALUCH weavers use almost exclusively the asymmetrical Persian knot. Knots tend to be small and tightly packed down.

Price: BALUCH rugs are in great demand. Expect to pay $5-$19 Per Square Foot (PSF) for a carpet from BALUCHESTAN.

Where is BALOUCHESTAN?

Bazzar Zabol Balouchestan
Bazaar
ZABOL
The province of Baluchestan, where the tribes who make the distinctive Baluch rug have lived over the centuries, borders KERMAN to the east and south. The two important cities in this province are ZABOL and ZAHEDAN. Here, Turkish tribes live in black tents and tend their flocks much as they did a hundred or more years ago, relatively isolated from commerce, technology and the conveniences (and frustrations) of the modern world.

The rugs they weave painstakingly by hand (often taking many months to complete) have practical uses in the household or are preserved as items of value to be traded during lean times for basic essentials.

The migratory lifestyle of the people is largely unaffected by civilization and they are unaware of the commercial markets around the world into which their artifacts are ultimately absorbed and prized as art.

Camel wool is widely used as a background color in the making of many Baluch pile rugs. They tend to be smaller in size and are made using the asymmetrical Persian knot. The broadside finish (see illustration) is characteristic of finer Baluchi weaving styles, reinforced by 3 or 4 strong goat hair cables.
