Baluch Rugs are really a type of rug rather than the output of one single ethno-linguistic group. Over a series of pages I will deal with Baluch and the various sub-types. baluch is a language so people whose primary language is Baluch are Baluchi. But the Baluch are also a political entity under Iranian law so the Government also defines who are the Baluch. Then there are the people who are always or even sometimes counted as Baluch. This group includes but not limited to: Barbari, Berberi, Chahar-Aimaq, Char Aimaq, Taimuri (Teimuri, Timuri, Taimouri), Teimurtash, Taimani, Zohri (Zuri), Jamshidi (Jamshedi, Djamchidi, Yemchidi, Dzhemshid), Firozkohi, Maliki, Mizmast, Chinghizi, Zainal, Baluchi, Baluci, Baloci, Makrani, Coastal Balochi, Kechi, Makrani (Lotuni), Rakhshani (Raxshani), Sarawani, Brahuidi, Birahui, Brahuigi, Kur Galli, Jharawan, Kalat, Sarawan.
