Product Information

Details

This rug is a unique piece of world art that will enhance your living space. The majority of Balouchi rugs are woven in the province Sistan-Baluchistan, which is in the Southeastern part of Iran. A lot of Balouchi rugs also come out of Iran's vast province of Khorassan which is just to the north. Balouchi rugs typically have geometric patterns and lively designs, and dominant colors include blues, reds and browns. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 150. The pile height is 0.25 inches. This rug is made of 100-percent wool . Colors include beige, red, navy, and rust.

Story Behind the Art:
These Balouchi rugs are tribal hand-woven rugs made in the southern part of Iran by weavers in the nomadic Balouchi tribes. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from raising sheep for wool, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.

Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
