Balouch Rug Shipment November 29 2014

The holidays came early at Kush! We received a colorful collection of Balouch Sumac tribal rugs. Our sumacs, (also spelled soumakh, sumak, and soumac,) were woven in the south east of Shiraz, home to the Afshar Nomads. They were woven using a special weaving technique that combines traditional knotted pile along with sumac weaving, or the side of the fiber. The cut pile stands out in beautiful relief against the flat sumac weave.
