rug-type-baluchi

The largest Baluchi tribal concentration, both in area and population, is in Pakistan. The Baluchi tribal people are nomadic historically and they continue the nomadic way of life even today. Baluchi rugs are unlike any other style of rug. Their hallmark is whimsy, with bright unexpected colors and playful patterns. Both the knotting and the warp of these rugs are 100% wool.

  • Knot count: Over 100 knots per square inch
  • Colors in each rug: 6–10 colors
  • Composition: 100% wool on a wool warp and weft
  • Type of knot: Senna
  • Production: Although primarily produced in smaller sizes, a 9’x12′ rug could be completed in 9–10 months by four to five experienced artisans working five to six hours a day.
