Location: Royal Baluch
Size: 6'2" x 4'2"
When it comes to the geographical location of where Baluch pieces are produced, something is quite extraordinary; most Baluch carpets do not come from the Baluchistan area which stretches from south-western Iran to central Pakistan. Interestingly, they are hand-knotted in the eastern parts of Razavi Khorassan, and Southern Khorassan provinces of Iran, and in a large area of western Afghanistan, alongside the Iranian border.
Baluch rugs have one thing in common which makes them distinguishable from other oriental carpets: their colours. There are four main shades that are used for the background in these pieces: dark red, dark brown, dark grey, and dark blue. From time to time, these oriental beauties come in beige and mustard as well. On the other hand when it comes to the borders, Baluch carpets have set up their own trend: they either come in a similar colour-tone as their central field, or they come in shades that are unrelated to their central field.
Price Range and Value:
As with all the nomadic rugs, Baluch carpets are made on ground looms (horizontal looms). The warp is mainly wool-based and the weft is of a single thread, which places these oriental beauties in a lower tier right behind their Persian/Iranian counterparts. As such, Baluch rugs are some of the most affordable investments in the world of oriental carpets.
