|Najibullah Production Red Rug 1
This rug is in perfect and new condition. It has never been used on the floor.
This rug is interesting because it has features of a Najibullah Rug but the design of a red rug. Specifically the red wool kilim end with one blue stripe indicates Najibullah style. Secondarily, In the foremost stocks of the large AK47's are blue with white diagonal lines, which is typical of patterns in Najibullah Rugs. Thirdly, the planes, at topmost for example, are drawn like Najibullah rug with little rods sticking out of the wings. This rugs difference with Najibullah rugs are twofold. The classic Najibullah rug from the 1990's is densely knotted with very fine, or 'Beljik' wool. Rug 1522 has better wool than most red rugs but not the 'Beljik' wool of hte Najibullah rugs.

|Green Gun War Rug|
This war rug is an example of the RPG design red rug. This type is the most elegant design of red rugs with its symmetry on the vertical axis. This is a good example of the type.
|Green Truck Red Afghan War Rug|
This war rug is new, and its condition is perfect.
|Brown and Green Helicopter War Rug|
This war rug is in excellent condition.
|Red Rug with Two Poppies on Bottom Left|
New condition. This is an informative rug. The plants on the bottom left are poppies. The other plants are less distinctly shaped and a motif we see on many rugs. All the flowers look like the two, more clearly rendered examples, on the bottom. From this we can deduce, that common, yet less distinct image, which we see often, is also a poppy.

|4 Green Tanks|
Good, nice limited color
|3 Black Helicopters|
|Symmetrical RPG Red War Rug|
New war rug in perfect condition. Excellent design. Symmetry of RPG's and pineapple fragmentation grenades is very nice.
|Two Rows of Tanks and Helicopters without Kalashnikovs Red Afghan War Rug|
This new war rug is in perfect condition. This is one of the very best designs we have seen in the Turkmen red war rugs. The composition and use of color is outstanding. We would be remiss to not point out the remarkable use of symmetry by the artist. The alignment of the weaponry is not only horizontal, but vertical as well. Just look at how the grenades are aligned down the center of the rug, and yet they are also used to crossword-like perfection in the tank-grenade- tank rows going across. The bullets are seen only in the helicopter rows, and even then the only time these are used to outline the bottom of the helicopter as well as the top is in the very center row. Even the bullet border has them all pointing inward. Very rarely do we see this type of symmetry, as these rugs usually are in a prayer rug format, with clear delineation of direction. Also, there is a unique and subtle use of the very traditional melding with the contemporary, even within war rug folk art. This rug was made in 2002, and there is the text of USSR on every helicopter, which is typical of soviet-era war rugs. However, a tradition of many of our US helicopter pilots is to have a face painted on the front of the helicopter to scare our enemies and support morale among our troops. There is a mouth woven onto each and every helicopter. A brilliant piece of art, to say the least.
|Full Army Vegetal Dye Red Afghan War Rug|
This new war rug is in perfect condition. This war rug was woven in Peshawar, Pakistan by an Afghan refugee, so it is understandable how this female artist knows and depicts so clearly the inner workings of a Kalashnikov rifle. Peshawar is increasingly becoming Taliban-esque, and the refugees are being forced to relive the nightmare that once ruled Afghanistan. Because of this, Peshawar is becoming known as the place for religious fundamentalists to go and have their firearms altered. This war rug is very relevant and telling of the times in which the artist lives. Many of the refugees are now leaving the camps and returning to Afghanistan, where they are less likely to come across these fundamentalists.
Also of note, is the remarkable use of colors in this rug. Just look at the medium-sized helicopter located just below the centered tank. It is almost as if the artist was depicting the helicopter as being camouflaged. This is a striking addition to war rug folk art.
|Two Big Guns War Rug|
This new war rug is in very good condition. It has been through a special washing process in Pakistan, and the colors will only get more beautiful with time as the wool oxidizes. The composition is quite good in this war rug. The artists use of the space between the two Kalashnikovs is done with exceptional precision, allowing for varying and interesting weaponry. The multiple colors in the bullet border are echoed in the planes, making for an almost pixilated appearance and a wonderful contemporary twist.
|Red War Rug with Two Pink Helicopters|

|Red War Rug with Green and Tan RPG, Hand Grenades and Land Mines|
The condition of this war rug is excellent.
This pattern is one of the most attractive patterns used in red rugs. The large RPG's running down the middle balance the largeness of the AK-47s and provide a symmetry to the whole design.
The color of this rug is a burgundy. The selvedge is a beautiful red color.
The dagger shaped motifs are a form of land mine. They are like a hand grenade on a stick. The stick is mounted in the ground and a trip wire is attached to the top of the grenade part. When the wire is pulled the grenade part explodes, above ground, wreaking terrible damage to anyone around. Simple and brutal.
The octagonal forms with three lines running vertically through the middle is some kind of mine or improvised explosive device one sees occasionally on war rugs. If you know what it is specifically, please contact us.
|Washed Red Rug with Three Helicopters on Top and Six Grenades on Bottom|
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. It has a nice abrash to it. The staff at warrug.com all agree that the pattern seen in this war rug is exceptional. The continuity of the mixed geometric colors used in the helicopters, hand grenades, and along the bullet border is lovely. The tribal aspect of small mistake, clearly shows the beautiful juxtaposition and the brilliant traditional appeal of nomadic, tribal weaving versus the perfection of regular Persian city carpets.
|Red Rug Small Runner|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The colors are nicely militaristic using tan, olive and brown as well as the typical red commonly seen in Baluch war rugs. The composition is rather interesting, as the layout has only the AK-47s in mirror image. All the other vehicles and weaponry, including the bullet border, are facing in the same direction. This almost lends one to think that it could also double as a prayer rug if need be.
|Red Rug with Butterflies|
This slightly older rug is in very good condition, but has small area of low pile. Excellent design, good drawing. Butterflies are a nice touch.
|Red War Rug with Small Emerald Green Tanks|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The colors used in this war rug are absolutely wonderful. Great attention by the weaver has been given to alternating colors, seen throughout this rug in the bullets and along the helicopter. This rug has very nice, simple and stylized emerald green tanks. The drawing of these is very attractive and they are a classic motif on these red war rugs. Not commonly seen, but highly sought after, are the bullets seen in the magazines of the rifles and the internal mechanisms used to fire the gun. This is interesting partly because this war rug came out of one of the Afghan refugee camps located in Peshawar. How an Afghani weaver could know the internal workings of a rifle is not much of a puzzle given the refugees locale. In this north-western Pakistani region, there are many changes occurring right now. Many of the Pashtuns there, (the weavers of our rugs are Turkmen) are creating a Taliban-sequel existence. Interestingly, the changes we are seeing in the war rugs using more internal diagrams of the ammunitions could be directly related to the camps proximity to the shops in Pakistan that make and alter rifles.
|Red Rug with a lot of Text and Airplane Border|
The condition of this war rug is new and perfect. This war rug is a classic example of this type of rug.
The field is nicely filled in with large helicopters with tail rotors intact and if you look closely, you will see the inclusion of two handguns, each located on either ends of this rug. All of the planes found point in one direction, and this rug could be used as a prayer rug as well, with the only two planes located in the main field found in the typical hand positions.
A wonderful use of a variety of colors compliment the interesting dichotomy of war and prayer. A great rug for the experienced collector and beginner alike, sure to be a point of interest for discussion in any home or office.
|Red Rug with Trucks, RPG and Plane Dropped Land Mines|
This war rug is an excellent example of this type of rug. The condition is new. The drawing is spare and the images are diverse. The colors are simple and bold.
Michael Luongo, a New York City journalist who recently visited Afghanistan, brought back an interesting report from the Omar Mine Museum near Kabul. He described a land mine which the Soviets would drop from planes at night, so when the Afghans woke up they would be stranded in their houses, and walking outside would be very treacherous. This type of mine is shown in this rug. It is shown clearly in the sixth photograph down the page. They were bright colors and had a plastic look. Thanks to Michael Luongo for his description and photographs.
|Red Rug with Medallions and Bullet Skirt Border Only|
The condition of this new rug is perfect. This pattern is unusual. At first glance it is not a war rug, but rather looks like a Baluch rug from Iran. On closer inspection it shows one row of bullets along the fringe on top and bottom.
This rug uses nice color in an unusual pattern. It has a nice Turkman border (small white medallions). This rug is well knotted.
|Red Rug with Bullet Border|
The condition of this new rug is perfect, with nice colors. The field is a beautiful fire engine red color and the pink accents are a good contrast
|Red Rug with Little Plants|
The condition of this new war rug is perfect. This war rug has beautiful uses of color with wonderful drawings. The composition of the designs is excellent. The field is densely laid out with images. Often it is boring for a weaver to go long stretches of weaving one solid color, so they will often fill in the area with little Xes. The weaver of this rug, however, fills in the field with a variety of interesting images, including smaller aircraft and munitions with the occasional small plant as an excellent accent.
|Rust Colored Red War Rug|
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. This wash gives this war rug very nice colors in beautiful muted tones. The drawings are excellent. The images depicted in this rug in particular are great with the small white RPG below the top helicopter a nice touch. The composition is wonderful and this war rug will only become more beautiful over time.
|Small Red War Rug with Three Bombers Running Up Middle|
This new war rug is in very good condition. It has nice colors which look like vegetable dye. Nice design. AK's are nicely stylized; they are big and boxy. Nice contrast of colors. Nice drawing.
|Small Red War Rug with Anti-aircraft Truck Between Triggers of AK-47s|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The color is vibrant and the sheen on this rug is extraordinary. There are images of AK-74s along the sides and wonderful drawings of a battery of anti-aircraft weapons. The rocket launchers are depicted in the likes of childhood toys. The use of colors in the images throughout this war rug is absolutely wonderful with innocence juxtaposed with the harsh reality of military armaments. The bullets along the border continue this color theme.
|Small Red War Rug with RPG in Middle of Field|
The composition of this design. One does not see this design in small rugs. Reminiscent of prayer rug. Everything points towards the top.
Mixture of synthetic and natural dyes.
|Red Afghan War Rug with Green Helicopters|
This new Afghan war rug is in excellent condition. The first rug we ever bought was one of this pattern. Rug 315 has good drawing, meaning the overall layout and composition work well together. The helicopters and tanks are nicely laid out down the middle of the field and the AK-47's are accurately drawn and point in the same direction. Some people have wondered if the AK's pointing in the same direction mean it is a prayer rug, this is possible. The airplane border on this rug is simple and attractive. The best thing about this rug though is the color. The red if bright and vivid and the red contrasts the other colors very well.
This type of rug is essentially a Bokara rug with the guls replaced by weapons.
Another nice feature of this rug is the explosions coming out of the cannons on the tank.
|Red Pakistan War Rug with Hand Guns|
This new Afghan war rug is in excellent condition. This is a perfect example of this type. The wool is quite good and after it was woven in Afghanistan, it was sent to Pakistan to receive a special wash that softens the wool and ever-so-slightly mutes its colors. This gives this war rug a lovely abrash.
The weapons are classically drawn, suggesting that this weaver has been weaving war rugs since the original Soviet invasion. The helicopters are brilliantly done in the style of tradition (the seats seen in profile inside the helicopter) meeting the contemporary (the blades and the tail rotor). The hand grenades and the bullet border is another example of traditional war rug images, but the hand guns are contemporary and used throughout Afghanistan by American Special Forces in a very unconventional, new type of war as they move through the mountains on a hunt for Osama bin Laden.
|Small Washed Red Rug with Six Grenades on Bottom Row Afghan War Rug|
"The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. It has a nice abrash to it.
|Small Washed Red Rug 3|
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. There is a little bleeding, which is commonly seen in this type of war rug, located in three of the corners around the dark blue bullets into the surrounding red.
This war rug has a very nice abrash and the drawings are excellent. The images depicted in this rug in particular are rarely used and make this war rug really stand out from the others. An example of these drawings are the hand gun, an AK-74 instead of the usual AK-47 seen, and the RPG with an extra rocket. These are wonderfully done and this war rug will only become more beautiful over time.
|Small Washed Red Rug 2|
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. It has lovely abrash to it and the wool is finer than most.
The use of a symmetrical pattern is well done with the added touch of grenades only at the bottom suggesting that the weaver miss calculated the size. This lends to the appeal of the traditional tribal form of weaving used by the nomads in Afghanistan. A real plus for collectors and non-collectors alike.
|Small Washed Red Rug 1|
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. It has a nice abrash to it.
The staff at warrug.com all agree that the pattern seen in this war rug is exceptional. The continuity of the mixed geometric colors used in the helicopters, hand-grenades, and along the bullet border is lovely. The tribal aspect of small mistakes, such as the writing in the tanks all going in one direction except for one tanks text in the bottom left row, clearly shows the beautiful juxtaposition and the brilliant traditional appeal of nomadic, tribal weaving versus the ""perfection"" of common, Persian city carpets.
|Red Rug 15|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This war rug is one of the staffs' favorite at warrug.com. The color is vibrant and the sheen on this rug is extraordinary. There are images of AK-74s along the sides and wonderful drawings of a battery of anti-aircraft weapons. The rocket launchers are depicted in the likes of childhood toys. The use of colors in the images throughout this war rug is absolutely wonderful with innocence juxtaposed with the harsh reality of subtle military colors. The bullets along the border continue this color theme.
|Red Rug 14|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The sheen really stands out, as does the uncommon use of planes as the border. The shade of green used in the helicopters and as an accent throughout is gorgeous and rarely seen in war rugs. The consistent use of planes and flowers in small detail along the inner field is nice as is the use of the color white as a highlight. The drawing of the helicopters and tanks is extremely well done. This rug is an excellent example of a classic war rug and sure to be quite the conversation piece in any home or office.
|Red Rug 13|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The drawing is well done with nice colors throughout,
The alternating pattern of the helicopters and tanks down the center sets off the symmetry with the rifles along the side. An interesting point as well, there are two small fighter planes off the two sides in the very middle of this war rug, with only one facing in the opposite direction of all the other machinery. The colors in the grenades is found throughout the rug with nice repeat of these colors in the bullets found along the border.
|Red Rug 12|
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This red rug is one of the staffs' favorite at warrug.com for many reasons. The first of which is the weavers use of small fighter jets throughout this war rug. This is done in the traditional sense that it is boring to the artist to weave blocks of one color, so she adds the element used in all-over designs, yet replaces the image traditionally seen as flowers with jets. Another point of interest is the nod to the soviet-era war rugs by including illegible text. The characters used is not exactly found in the English language and is a beautiful attempt to show the words that surround her life. Last, but certainly not least, is the unusual border seen in this war rug. Most red rugs depict weaponry or bullets as the border, the use of a benign pattern around the war images is interesting.
|Pakistan Red Rug|
Nice airplane border. More Saturday.
|Red Rug Too|
|Red Rug Ghazni Wool|

|Red Rug 4|
This new war rug is in perfect condition. What makes this rug stand out from other rugs of this style that we offer, is its unusual drawings. Some of the atypical weapons seen on this war rug are Chinese grenade-launchers, pineapple hand-grenades, and Baghlani-styled airplanes bravely juxtaposed with the typical motifs still found on this rug. The use of a much deeper blood-red color is also quite eye-catching.
|Red Rug 3|
