Lovely patterned deep red hand woven Baluchi wool rug/kilim. Vase design, unique patterning. Darker than it looks here.

4 feet 10" x 3 feet

Perfect condition, a lovely rug. It would look nice in a study or lounge perhaps.

Kilims at their best are not only extremely decorative; they serve a highly utilitarian purpose. Inspired by the natural colors of the landscape and rugged terrain, the patterns of these kilims tend to be simple and bold. Among the best known are those of Maimana, Baluch, Turcoman, Uzbek, Timpani, and the Kazak.

This Baluchi Kilim is hand-knotted in Afghanistan back in the 1980s; it is clean and is in perfect condition. Please bear in mind that these are handmade rugs and are sometimes not a perfect square or rectangle in shape.

HISTORY:

Baluchi carpets (also called Baluch or Beluchi carpets) are handmade carpets originally made by Baluch nomads living near the border between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. These nomads also occur in a smaller scale in Bahrain and in the Punjab province of India. About 70% live in the main part in Pakistan and are divided into two groups; Sulaimani and Makrani.

The carpets are sold in the city Mashad in Iran - Mashad-Baluch carpets, and on the other hand in the city Herat in Afghanistan as Herat-Baluch carpets.

The carpets are often small with lively patterns, and praying carpets are common. The dominating colours are red, brown and dark blue. The warp is made of wool or a mixture of wool and goat hair, newer carpets have a warp made of cotton.

Nice Red/Green Baluchi rug/kilim. Hand woven.
