A stunning Heart Belouch, crafted in two halves to represent each migratory camp, summer and winter. It's evident that this rug was created for personal use rather than the commercial Western market. Belouch rugs are known for their deep and dark colour palette, often featuring black, deep indigo, and aubergine tones. However, in this rug, chemical dyes were used, resulting in slightly more vibrant colours that compete for attention. The weaver must have mentally planned and determined the size, ensuring the other half matched as closely as possible—a remarkable skill in mirroring and matching.

Her work encompassed weaving, cooking, and tending to the sheep. Sized to line the base of the yurt after the initial layer of kilims, it would have served its purpose perfectly. The design in this piece showcases a large, stylized repeating flower in the border, accompanied by repetitive, almost tile-like geometric motifs in the main field. Still complete, the rug boasts kilim ends, and the wool possesses a delightful lustre that captivates the viewer.
