Baluchi rugs are made by Baloch people residing in the south-western part of Afghanistan. Baluchistan is divided among Afghanistan, Eastern Iran, and Pakistan. That’s why they carry a blend of three different cultures on their designs. Known for their small size and resemblance to a prayer carpet, they are loosely woven and have a multi-color pallet. They often have soft woolen piles and feature bold and geometrical designs. Silk is added to the rugs for improving softness and luxury feel. These rugs can be used as floor mats and tapestries as well.

BALUCHI RUGS: A MELTING POT OF CULTURAL INFLUENCES
Today’s Baluchi rugs reflect the culture of three countries namely Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. These rugs are made by Baluch nomads living near the border of these three nations. It is said that these rugs were originally made as prayer rugs or for the purpose like serving food.
In Iran, these carpets are known as Mashad-Baluch carpets as they are sold in the city of Mashad. They are known as Herat-Baluch carpets in Afghanistan due to their sale in the city of Herat.
Each region has influenced the colors and patterns of the rug. However, only Baluchi people can help you identify where the rug was actually woven.
Baluchi rugs can be used as both tapestries and floor mats. Their size is ideal for filling up the gap of non-decorated space. These rugs are known for making the environment a bit cozy and warm.
Characteristics of Baluchi Rugs
The rugs feature highly varied patterns, consisting of repeated motifs, and arranged diagonally. Some rugs feature a maze of complex latch-hooked forms. Baluchi prayer rugs have a simple rectangular arch-head design at one end to point to the direction of the pious city of Mecca. Generally, these prayer rugs are dotted with the leaves and stems of tree and geometric shapes.
The key colors are brown, dark blue and red.
The commonly used materials in the Baluch rugs are wool, cotton or the fibers obtained from goat or camel hairs. To make these gabbeh rugs expensive and luxurious, wool is mix with silk.
Baluch rugs are generally available in small area rug sizes ranging from 1x3 feet to 3x5 feet. Larger pieces of Baluchi rugs are rarely available.
Baluch rugs are knotted with the asymmetrical knot open to the left.
