A beautiful handwoven red, blue, tan, and off-white Baluch rug. Sometimes spelled as "Balouch" or "Baluchi", Baluch rugs are a type of handwoven tribal rug that originates from the Baluch people, a nomadic ethnic group primarily living in regions of Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. (They are sometimes referred to as Persian, Herat, or oriental rugs.) These rugs are known for their distinctive designs, often featuring geometric patterns, dark color palettes, and a unique sense of authenticity.
Like this rug, many Baluch rugs are characterized by simple yet intricate designs, with a tendency towards geometric patterns and motifs like diamonds, rectangles, and polygons. The Baluch people are known for their nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle, and their rugs reflect their cultural heritage and way of life. Baluch rugs are crafted using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations.
