Description & Technical information
A Baluch rug from the Zabol area.
A very unusual colour combination.
The Baluchi live mostly in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran. Although their patterns seem close to those used in Turcoman rugs, there is no direct kinship. Their roots and history were never clearly documented . Many tribes live in Khorassan and their identity has kind of merged with the local population.
Turcoman and Kurds use the Turkish knot, but Baluchi mainly use the Persian knot.
Date: Around 1950
Period: 20th century
Medium: warp and weft: wool, pile: wool
Dimensions: 324 x 117 cm (127³/₅ x 46¹/₁₀ inches)
