This is a dark take on the 10 Tank War Rug style. The 16 tanks it actually sports are surrounded by first a geometric design then a second, more floral outer border. There are small red and orange planes filling the negative space between the tanks. The colors overall are quite somber.
Wool: Dense, slightly dry Sheen: Very good Handle: Floppy but strong Selvedge: Tightly braided blue goat hair
Fringe: 1/2 in tan fringe Pile: 1mmWarp: Tan woolWeft: Blue/Grey cotton
Warp Depression:No warp depression. All the warp threads lay on the same plane, so both nodes of every knot are clearly visible from the back of the rug.
