Textiles from Baluchi (also known as Balouch, Beluch, Belouch, Beludj etc.), I collect them with great joy and try to see and learn more about them.
The purpose of this site is to build a platform to show some of this beautiful textiles and to exchange and collect information about them.
First I see this weavings as pieces of art, but I feel also a lot of respect for the history, traditional life and personal destiny from its weavers, solely women (?). They had for sure a hard life as nomadic people from which we know hardly nothing.
Those who are interested in Baluch textiles or those who are already Baluchophiles are invited to contribute, either in adding comments or sharing information about Baluchi and their textiles. Maybe you feel motivated to open here your own collection in this page to show some of your Baluch textiles gems.
As we all know, textiles from the Baluchi are like a virus from which you will never be healed for the rest of your life. But this virus brings a lot of joy, which I hope you will find on this page too...
Ever got a smile from a Baluch rug?
