Baluchistan Carpets

Indian-made carpets. Goat's hair yam is used for pile on a jute or cotton ground. The pile has a beautiful lustre, finer, even than silk. Patterns are of the fantastic geometrical character. The ends of the warp and weft terminate in a web-like prolongation and these are striped in colours to give a fancy fringe.
