A Brief History of Baluch Carpets

Confusingly, the Baluchi tribes do not originate from the area called Baluchistan, which lies to the south-west of what is now Pakistan. The finest Baluchi rugs come from the large Afghan-Persian border district several hundred kilometres north of Baluchistan. The majority of Baluch production was small rugs easily transportable by the nomadic people. Prayer rugs with a mihrab field and tree-of-life pattern are one of the best-known of Baluch designs. The typical combination of dark colours, predominantly deep tones of red and blue, but also black (produced by using natural wool darkened with indigo dye) and brown, with small amounts of white looked particularly effective in the dark Baluchi tent interiors. Large Baluchi carpets are quite rare, because as nomadic tent dwellers, the looms had to be small and easily transportable.
