More info: The repeating patterns of highly stylized camel's foot or pear-shaped medallions which are framed on all sides along with geometric borders is the most prominent element of Baluch (Balouch) nomadic Persian carpets. 

The result is a very geometric and intricate design that borrows largely from Turkmen style, especially in the use of the “gul” motif. Carpet Baluch Nomadic (Balouch) rug is of excellent quality and last for several years. These rugs are usually small (2 x 3 to 4 x 6 feet). Larger sizes exist, but are hard to find.

Finished rugs are nearly square. Dark red or blue contrasted with splashes of white, yellow and orange. They have soft wool, thin, tight pile texture and the foundation of the majority of the Baluch (Balouch) rugs comes from two areas: The Taimani Tribe in Afghanistan and the Baluch Tribes from Iran.

The foundation of Baluch Turkman Persian carpet is made of white cotton or grey wool. In several of these rugs, goat hair is also used as a warp material. Baluch (Balouch) rugs are woven from soft wool and dyed with corrosive black/brown dyes. Weavers in the Baluch (Balouch) region nearly exclusively utilize the asymmetrical Persian knot. Knots are often tiny and densely packed.
