Belouch Area Rug | Size: 196 x 119 cm | Colour: Brown
Also known as Belouch or Baluchi rugs. Balouch rugs are woven by the Nomads in the Herat, Farah, Badghis and Faryab Provinces of Western Afghanistan. The hand-knotted yarn used in making these rugs come from a local sheep which has very fine fleece, hence the soft and pliable handle. Baluchi rugs are known for their resilience and have a sense of age and history behind them, the design in each rug being unique. Balouch rugs have a dark hue, the backgrounds are often either dark red, dark brown or navy blue with contrasting highlights in white or ivory and yellows and oranges.
