Afghan Baluch Rugs
It might be imagined that local carpet buyers in the nineteenth century would have cleared out all tribal rug stocks. This was far from the truth. Some nomadic tribes have been completely untouched by the influences of the twentieth century. They have continued to produce pieces full of tribal significance. In fact, the Yuncu tribe of western Turkey, who consider their work to have mystical properties, have restricted the the attempts of outsiders to obtain them. Occasionally they have been forced to sell due to pressure resulting from famine, war or political influences. In this situation anything will be sold, including jewellery, carpet and needlework. Suddenly the market will be swamped with tribal goods. However, these items will soon disappear as demand decreases. This has happened many times over the last hundred years, most recently in Afghanistan when a large amount of Turkmen tribal pieces became available.
