This semi-antique rug from the Baluch tribe, with its extremely long hair, is a rug used to sleep on in nomadic communities. These types of rugs were almost always woven in two parts and joined in the center. It is a type of rug that is difficult to find since it rarely reaches the market as it is entirely for domestic use and often, due to its function, is in a poor state of preservation. This rug has survived to this day in immaculate condition, with a long (and somewhat wild!) pile, and with the original kilim finishes, indicating that it was probably never used. A piece of great ethnographic and aesthetic interest.

Material: 100% hand-spun sheep wool
