We scoured the markets to find as many of these beautiful older dugs as we could. Douladabad is a Baluchi subgroup

Camels are important to Baluchi tribes and the camel print, as well as (very occasionally) camel hair, is used in the creation of their rugs. Balouch rugs can be made on a foundation of cotton or wool, goat hair is often used in the weft. The ‘camel print’ or ‘gul’ repeat medallions are common in Baluchi rugs although various other designs are produced. Dark reds or blue backgrounds often contrast with white, ivory, yellow or orange patterns. Baluchi rugs are soft and flexible yet extremely resilient and have a real feeling of age and history behind them. They are sought after in the West due to their tribal appeal.
