The Baluchi people have a huge list of tribes, some who are still nomadic, still producing rugs. But, a Baluchi rug is also a style and it's often difficult to tell who actually wove it, especially if you have untrained eyes like mine. Their range of types of weaves and carpets is enormous! Most of the weavers are found today in Afghanistan, Pakistan and neighboring countries. The medallions in the design are normally a tribal signature.

This piece was hand knotted, wool on wool warp, and is in good shape. It has a woven backing which means that it may have been used as a grain bag. The bag could be stuffed and used as a floor pillow. If you have a spoiled dog, stuff it with foam and your dog will think it is royalty!

36" x 21"
Metric: 91.5 x 53.5 centimeters

Estimated age: 1970's

The last two photos shows the back of the piece. The front is hand knotted and the back is a flat weave.

Note on shipping on this piece: I offer free shipping on purchases over $100 in the United States. I only cover up to $20 of the shipping costs on international orders like this one and the customer pays the balance. It is very difficult to estimate how much a piece like this will cost to ship to other locations, but based on previous shipments, it will probably be over $45 to Australia or Europe. I am guessing on the shipping and if I am way off, we will have to adjust it.
