The province of Baluchestan, the home of the Balouch rug (also Belouch or Balooch), borders the south-east of Kerman is host to many Turkish tribes who settled in the region centuries ago to tend their flock. Belouch rugs are closely related to Turkman rugs, in fact they are technically Turkman pieces only Turkman rugs are differentiated due to their very high quality.
Camels are important to Baluchi tribes and the camel print, as well as (very occasionally) camel hair, is used in the creation of their rugs. Balouch rugs can be made on a foundation of cotton or wool, goat hair is often used in the weft. The ‘camel print’ or ‘gul’ repeat medallions are common in Baluchi rugs although various other designs are produced. Dark reds or blue backgrounds often contrast with white, ivory, yellow or orange patterns. Baluchi rugs are soft and flexible yet extremely resilient and have a real feeling of age and history behind them. They are sought after in the West due to their tribal appeal. Balouch rugs are limited in size due to their tribal origins, woven on horizontal looms the maximum length is normally around 2-2.5 metres.
