Legends in the Art of Pile Knotting -
Virtuosi in Rug Weaving


Virtuosi in Rug Weaving

were the farming and pastoral peoples working in the
Baluch-Tradition with their rugs and kilims
in Khorasan and the greater area of Herat.
Today, in their areas of origin virtually none
of these tribal weavings are left to be found.
As a traveller, already 49 years ago, I started to collect
these Baluch works of artistic craftsmanship
which have become so rare since.
With pride I present a wide variety of nomadic works:
from the tent, for the animal, the wedding, the migration,
for the daily bread, the prayers, for storage and transport.
Here, women's hands have created necessary and useful things,
full of beauty and works of art in their own right.
