Balouchistan is a sparsely populated area of arid deserts and mountains that straddles the borders of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran.The main Balouchi weaving area is a stretch of about 500 km along the Persian-Afghan border and is very inhospitable. Balouch peoples in Iran are village dwellers while those in Afghanistan and Pakistan are nomads. Balouchi tribes usually weave carpets of a small size, under ten feet, some kilims and a variety of camel bags, salt bags and soffrai.The colours are distinctive, deep rich blues and reds with the designs in black, brown, some camel wool and small amounts of white.
