This prayer rug is woven by the Baluch tribes of Central Asia. When used for prayer, the rug would be placed on the ground with the mihrab or arch pointing towards Mecca. Made in the early 20th century, the rug features a deep palette of colours, which is typical of Baluch weavings. Abstracted bushes fill the field and the mihrab is outlined with a connected serpents border.
Tribal carpets are typically made by nomadic and semi-nomadic tribes from various parts of the world. Their designs are different from modern, commercial carpets, in that they are mostly raw, abstract and somewhat naïve. Typically, women weave the carpets without a set design in mind during the weaving process, which results in the variations in the patterns, and the irregular shapes of the carpets. These “perfect imperfections” are the delicate nuances, that add to the beauty of each one-of-a-kind handwoven carpet. Every tribal carpet has a unique story that comes from weaver’s thoughts and expressions. Elements like flowers, plants, human beings, birds, and animals such as dogs, sheep and camels often feature, giving a base to the storyline.
