The origin of this prayer rug is Herat and has been made by the Codani Balouch who settled in the mountains of that area. This handmade carpet is 100% fine hand spun sheep wool. Vegetable dyes have been used to make the colours of this carpet last for a very long time. This has a merger of Caucasian and Persian patterns which shows weavers association with the origin of their forefathers and of their own. 

Large numbers of Baluch and Baluch-style rugs are still made in Afghanistan, mainly in nomadic camps. Rug weaving remains a vital source of income for many thousands of Baluch living in nomadic camps, towns, and villages.
