  • Notes: Balouch patterned rugs originated from the mixture of three different regions, giving them a distinct style that has adopted several different cultures into its designs. These rtugs can be both as tapestries as well as floor mats. Balouch rugs are also known as Balouchi or Belouchi. These rugs are hand-knotted by the nomads of Balouch. Balouch or Baluchistan is the area between the borders of Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Therefore, Balouch rugs are said to be a mixture of three different regions. These rugs were originally made as prayer rugs, area carpets for serving food and sometimes as animal covers or furnishings. The materials commonly used in the Baluch rugs are cotton, wool, and occasionally goat or camel hairs. Like most Persian rugs, these Balouch rugs are woven with asymmetrical knots. Most of these rugs have a knot count over 100+ KPSI. A normal area sized rug can take up to ten months to make, with four or five weavers working almost six hours every day. All Balouch rugs have a heavy use of black outlines and black shades making the original shades of colors used even darker. One of the unique characteristics of Balouch rugs is the repetition of a singular pattern all over the rugs. They normally used geometrical motifs consisting of hexagons, rectangles, and triangles.
