Hi Joel,

Unlike other 'Baluch' rugs, many are asymmetrically knotted open right (ASR).
For the record, this one could be described as common garden variety Arab 'Baluch' from the Ferdows area.

It happens to be open left.

Note the purple in the kilim end, which is evidently a faded synthetic dye.

BTW, I am sure there is more to be said about those cotton-warped herati variants with the boffo borders.
