A distinct group of carpets woven by the Baloch tribes in northeastern Iran, Khorasan region and Sistan region in Iran are known as Baloch carpets.
In addition to the Baloch, many other tribes in Khorasan weave carpets that look similar to Baloch carpets and have been introduced to this carpet.
With classic reds, dark browns and unique tribal motifs, Balochi handwoven rugs help them look beautiful wherever they are placed.
These carpets are woven by the Baloch people in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That is why they carry a combination of three different cultures on their designs. These carpets are known for their small size to Sajjadeh carpets. They are often coarsely woven. They have soft wool piles and bold, geometric designs.
Balochi carpets are traditionally produced from sheep and goat wool obtained from these tribes' own herds. Modern Baloch carpets have cotton warp . Baloch carpets are simple and strong like all nomadic carpets. These nomadic carpets are also named after the cities where they are sold.
