DESIGN OF THE MONTH
Pattern BALOUCH at 20% Off Retail
Pattern History for this Kilim:
On the cross-point™ website we list eight color options for this easy to stitch pattern. Like other Kilims, Balouch is easy, fast and fun to stitch. Nomadic Balouch are known for somber, tightly woven saddle bags, wool kilims and other useful objects. Balouch women weave their objects on ground looms – like cross-point™ kits – they are easily transported from camp to camp. Originally designed as a pillow, in the photo above the pattern is shown adapted to a small pillow insert as well as a long border that fits on large chairs and makes plain upholstery more interesting.
In addition to our original 7 color options, a new color has been added. All are available as pillows, large and small; as pillow inserts; as long borders; and as rugs. Our newest color is based on historic tapestry colors with the addition of popular teals:
All color options shown on the website also show numerous companion patterns in related colors. We also posted images of the small Insert in all colors. The Long Border repeats the Insert pattern for the full 80 inch length. As you know, we also offer custom colors on all our patterns. For more information about cross-point™ please visit the website and our links for our youtube videos. Every pattern in our collectioon includes individual instructions as well as our Technique™ sheets.
