Baluchi rugs are hand-made by traditional nomadic artisans, from the remote tribal areas of North-West Afghanistan. Their crafts are unique and less uniform than professionally made rugs. It is often difficult to find two that are exactly alike. Their works are made from wool collected from their own flocks of sheep. It is becoming less common to find such rugs – they are truly unique tribal furnishings. A special talent of Baluch artisans is the way they use both weaving and knotting techniques to make rugs with textures or layers. Traditionally, their crafts were not made for commercial purposes and were often given as gifts or traded for needed supplies. There may be some variations in the shape and pattern of these rugs, due to them being handmade using traditional methods and not in professional workshops. Other spellings may include: Balochi, Baloch, Buluchi, Buluch. Learn more about our rugs here.
