Large Baluch Tribal Carpet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very nice and unusually large example of tribal weaving from the border regions between Iran and Afghanistan, attributed to one of the groups generally referred to as Baluch. Displaying a vibrant tribal sensibility, carpets like this also draw upon the classical weaving traditions of Eastern Persia from earlier centuries.

This is a great authentic example that shows the continuity of Baluch weaving traditions well into the twentieth century. A great find in near perfect state of preservation.
