The Baluch tribes are unevenly distributed among three nations: Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Few pile rugs come from Baluchistan proper, which is situated mostly in Pakistan territory, where flat weaves predominate.

Large numbers of Baluch and Baluch-style rugs are still made in Afghanistan, mainly in nomadic camps. Few tribes continue to live as nomads and still found in western Afghanistan today.
