The weavings from the Baluch tribes of west Afghanistan and Persia never cease to amaze in terms of design. The pattern depicted here is a classic one, but with a fascinating variation. The contiguous octagons are a classic configuration, but the birds added to the mix of design are very, very different, unique in my experience.

The condition is one of overall even wear, see the detail images for a true view of the surface of this weaving. The palette is diverse with an array of colors not commonly seen; all the colors are derived from natural dyes.
