Taimani is small Farsi/Turkic speaking tribe located in the central mountain regions of Afghanistan. They belong to a larger cluster of tribes, the Char Aimaq, who are scattered throughout Afghanistan and Iran. This nomadic group is named after Taiman, a Kakar Pushtun who built up a coalition in the mountains of Ghor around 1650.

The selvedge is more like Balouch, hence the alternate opinion on origin.
