Indulge in the rustic charm and timeless beauty of this antique 1880s Baluchi rug, a piece that reflects the nomadic lifestyle of the Baluchi people and tells a story of their artistry, culture, and history.
Crafted with an allover diamond motif, this rug features an earthy color story that is common to the Baluchi rug weaving tradition. Its compact size, rare square shape, and lightweight construction made it easy to transport, and its wool has already lasted for generations.
Handwoven with vegetable dyed wool, this adorable thin rug has a low wool pile with a wool foundation, giving it a floppy handle. The age-related wear and tear, including some small holes, are a testament to its authenticity and unique character. These imperfections only serve to enhance its simple beauty and bring a touch of history into any space it resides in.
