Place of origin
Baluch is a rug provenance between Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. Baluch rugs (also Baloch) are made by semi-nomads or nomads. Originally Baluch rugs were knotted exclusively by the Baluch nomads. Today, however, some other tribes also knot Baluch rugs. The patterns tend to be geometric and the color palette consists of red and brown tones. Mainly bridges and smaller rugs are produced because they are also used by the nomads themselves and are easier to transport. This old Beluch is more than 40 years old and a true collector's item.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Beluch. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a beautiful contrast to the center.
In the pattern of this Beluch, the diamonds stand out in particular. Diamonds are a rhombus standing on a point, the four equal sides of which may be jagged, stitched or hooked. The diamond is one of the oldest basic forms in oriental rugs. It has a symbolic meaning in the Islamic world: it symbolizes the immortality of the soul. It is therefore very often found as a filler motif.
The background of this Beluch is beige. Furthermore, the color light red dominates the overall impression. The border features light red and black.
You are not the first to appreciate this Beluch. It has had owners before you who have cherished and used it. It was hand knotted about 1960. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Beluch because we think it is as it is a special charm. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.
The pile of this Beluch has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The backing (weft and warp threads) of this Beluch is made of virgin wool.
