These carpets, contrary to the name, do not come from Baluchistan, which is on the border between southwest Persian and Pakistan. They are hand knotted, in fact, in the eastern part of Khorassan and in a large area of western Afghanistan, along the Iranian border. Balutchis are almost exclusively nomad work and are woven, for the most part, by Balutch tribe. As with all nomadic carpets, Balutchis are made on ground looms. The warp is mainly wool though recently cotton has gone into use as well. With a few exceptions, the weft is a single thread. The pile is of good quality wool but is lacking in luster and is not very deep. Natural camel wool has also been used. The Persian knot has a density of between 60 to 100 knots per square inch. Balutchis are typically small, like prayer rugs.
