Baluch tribal and village rugs

The Baluch people live in the provinces of Sistan/Baluchistan and Khorasan in the eastern part of Iran as well as the western parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Most Baluch rugs are woven in Iran, though some are from Western Afghanistan.

As is the case with much Iranian village weaving, Baluch rugs draw their individuality from the particular way in which they exhibit classic motifs and visual compositions. The starkly dark color palette of many Baluch rugs allow the rare light blues, greens, yellows and reds to glow with extra beauty.
