A straight-forward and heavily propaganda influenced depiction of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

An outline of the country of Afghanistan sits behind the towers. Below the scene sits an aircraft carrier deploying jets and a missile (labeled 'MSILE'). Human figures fall from the towers.
The grim nature of the main imagery is contrasted with the green and orange flowers in the red main border.

Contemporary Two-Panel WTC Rug
This is a contemporary version, from after 2010, of the World Trade Center rugs. The old style which was once plentiful is no longer available.

Other examples of Iraq war rugs are here.

There is no flag banner, as seen in previous iterations.

World Trade Center
The condition of this new Afghan war rug is new. We offer a variety of these war rugs at many different prices, depending on the quality of the wool and the weavers' drawings. The burgundy color on the right sides of the towers is particularly nice wool. This rug is thinner and stiffer than most of the type.
. The drawing is simple with literate text describing which plane hit first and second, which shows an eerie understanding by the weaver of what those of us who witnessed that horrible day (specifically from our office windows) will continually be haunted by. There are no people falling out of this one, and the drawing is not as graphic as most 9/11 war rugs. This would be a good rug for someone who likes the idea of the commemoration, but has a difficult time with some of the other war rugs. The symbolism of peace with the two flags and the white dove holding an olive branch is nice.

World Trade Center War Rug with PSYOPS Flag Banner
The condition of this new war rug is perfect. The entire staff at warrug.com have agreed that this is one of the best 9/11 war rugs that we have seen. The colors are absolutely outstanding with a variety not commonly seen ever before. An example of this is in the flames. The use of red, blue, yellow, black, and gold shows unparalleled attention to detail by the weaver. The drawing in this war rug is on a completely different level. The flags with the dove is extremely well drawn, with the American flag and the emblem in the center of the Afghani flag crystal clear. This is an impressive piece and should be passed on through generations.
There is some minor bleeding of dark into light colors which is common in these types of new war rugs.
383

World Trade Center War Rug
The condition of this new war rug is perfect. This is an incredible piece of folk art that accurately speaks of the times in which we live. The text along the top gives the date of the event and the reason for the resulting bombing of Afghanistan by the US reading,- The Terrors were in Afghanistan-. This is interesting, because shortly after the destruction in the US, our Special Forces in Psychological Operations began dropping leaflets in Afghanistan by the million. The leaflets explained, by using text and imagery of the burning towers, and a map of Afghanistan with missiles launching, the events that had and would unfold and the reasons behind this. They soon launched what is known as nation-building images of our two flags united, telling the people of Afghanistan that we were there for a specific reason and would help them, letting them know that our governments were united in this cause.
381

World Trade Center with Orange USA Between Towers
The condition of this new war rug is perfect. The use of militaristic colors gives this rug a sharp contemporary twist on traditional war rug weaving. We think of war rugs as being the typical Baluch red or blue, or of having subtle imagery if not of those types. There is no confusion as to the theme or resulting consequence of September 11th. Although we see the burning towers and people falling, the artist also clearly shows the American aircraft carrier and missile launching with a map of Afghanistan in the background. The nation building image of the American flag united with the Afghani flag by a dove carrying an olive sprig gives a nice focal point to the surrounding atrocities.
379

World Trade Center War Rug with Dark Colors
This is the most densely knotted of these rugs we have seen. They are usually around 100 knots per inch, but this one is 210!
The colors of this rug are particularly nice also. The palate is dark, the colors are muted. The color sits well in the wool as well.

The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug is extremely well knotted and truly stands out as such. The colors are exceptional in this rug and are used very nicely in the flags as well as the dove. The helicopter is nice in this war rug as well. The tower on the left is haunting while interesting at the same time because on the very top rear it is drawn with the steel melting and peeling back.

World Trade Center 9/11 War Rug w/ White Dove
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The colors were beautifully used with a rare, vivid red, and the drawings and text are crystal clear. The fire coming out of the missile in the bottom right is impressive. The emblem in the Afghani flag is one of the best we have seen at warrug.com. The use of the symbolic dove between the two flags and the well drawn planes carefully aligned on the aircraft carrier makes this war rug quite the collectors' item.
279

WTC
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is a simpler 9/11 war rug, but it is this somewhat tribal aspect that appeals to many of us at warrug.com. The navy blue in the flags is quite lovely, as is the dye of red used. The sky blue in the helicopter and highlighting the top of the World Trade Center and the olive sprig is refreshingly light. The fire in this war rug is not as harsh and dramatic as in the other 9/11 rugs, so the actual architecture and the symbol of peace seems to stand out more than in other war rugs of this design.
205

WTC
The condition of this new war rug is good. The pile is thicker on one end than on the other, but not by look, only by examination by hand. The drawing is simple and the only literate text is USA. There are no people falling out of this one, and the drawing is not as graphic as most 9/11 war rugs. This would be a good rug for someone who likes the idea of the commemoration, but has a difficult time with some of the other war rugs. The symbolism of peace with the two flags and the white dove holding an olive branch is nice.
204

WTC Before the Impact
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The drawing is pleasantly simple and has a strong graphic quality. The motifs are bold and straightforward. Features all of the motifs of other similar WTC rugs, however all are very simplified and abstracted. Very interesting rug.
Some of the red dye in the text is bleeding into the field, notably 'SEPTE' and '2001' in the top left corner.

NULL
The condition of this new war rug is perfect. This is an excellent example of folk art at its best. Using a traditional art form to express contemporary thoughts, shocking imagery that is relevant to the times in which it was made, and the flaws and blemishes that truly separate the folk artist from the more refined perfection of institutionalized technique. There is some bleeding of dark shades which is very common in these types of rugs.
191

World Trade Center 9/11 War Rug with White Dove 2
This new war rug is in perfect condition. The wool is soft and fine and the sheen is beautiful. Quite interestingly, the artist was trying to convey a thought in text that is rarely seen. In the map of Afghanistan found in the background, you see in the bottom left some text. The bottom word is clearly meant to be Afghanistan, but the two words located above that are illegible. The staff at warrug.com can not even guess as to the artists intentions, as we have never seen any other words associated with the naming of their country in the World Trade Center rugs. This type of writing is a nod to the older, soviet-era war rugs, where there would often be Cyrillic lettering with no meaning clearly understood.
190

World Trade Center 9/11 War Rug

World Trade Center
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug contains the very best drawing of the actual Twin Towers of any rug that has ever come through our doors at warrug.com. The precision and accuracy of the windows and the shading of the sides is so clear that it is eerie to anyone who was familiar with the WTC on a daily basis. This is sure to be quite a collectible and will only look better over time as the wool oxidizes.

World Trade Center

A haunting testimony of the time.

World Trade Center
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug is extremely well drawn and its use of colors is exceptional. The Twin Towers and the air craft carrier are almost drawn in 3-D fashion, as is the fire coming out of the missile fired in the lower right. Another interesting point that sets this war rug apart, is the text. It is quite clearly written and the fact that is fight is listed in order of impact, along with the airline and flight number.
There is the haunting image of a person falling between the two towers in this war rug.
179

World Trade Center
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. The military colors throughout is not very common, and the use of these colors makes the aircraft carrier especially nice with an almost camouflage appeal/reference on our jets. There is all natural un-dyed wool in the far right of the Afghani flag and this is wonderful tribal element appeals to many collectors. The Xs seen throughout the rug is a pattern that many weavers will use to fill in long stretches of boring weaving with only one color. This is not usually found in 9/11 war rugs because of its detailed images.

175

World Trade Center #8
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug is well knotted and the colors seem to match the child-like drawing in this rug. The water is shown in blue dots in the lower left corner and one gets the feeling this weaver is trying very hard to mimic the normally well-drawn 9/11 rugs because water is usually shown in only the finest examples of these war rugs. This is an example of a less experienced weavers work. The staff of warrug.com finds beginners tribal works wonderfully charming, and the juxtaposition of the haunting reference of that day combined with the innocent artistry makes this WTC war rug extremely unique.
174

World Trade Center #7
The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug is extremely well knotted and truly stands out as such. The colors are exceptional in this rug and are used very nicely in the flags as well as the dove. The helicopter is nice in this war rug as well.

World Trade Center #6
This new war rug is in excellent condition. The color is very good throughout and the map of Afghanistan behind the scene is extremely well done. The air craft carrier with the planes all in a row is done with extraordinary precision. The inconsistent text in this 9/11 war rug is reminiscent of the confusing text seen in older war rugs.
There is the painfully haunting image of people falling between the two towers in the area above the dove uniting the two flags.
113

World Trade Center #5
This new war rug is in good condition with some creases in the pile from being folded in transit. This will come out.

110

World Trade Center #2
This new war rug is in perfect condition. The wool is of good quality and this rug is particularly well knotted. The colors are nice and consistent throughout.
There are many things in this 9/11 rug that sets it apart from the rest in the pack. First off, there is no map of Afghanistan anywhere on it. This war rug also contains full views of the Twin Towers, which is very nice. The American flag is well drawn, as well. We must point out a rare, disturbing image on this rug, and that is of multiple drawings of people falling out between the two towers. This is seen very infrequently in the 9/11 rugs.
109

World Trade Center #1
This new war rug is in excellent condition. The colors are extremely nice throughout, and the images are hauntingly clear. The rug contains various scenes letting your eyes move and zero in on one area and the meaning behind each, or just to take in the overall theme as a whole.
The sharp drawing of the missile launching in the bottom right is particularly well done, as are the drawings of the planes in this war rug. Please allow us to also point out that there is an image in this one that may be a little hard to take, although rare in most 9/11 themed rugs and not as pronounced in this rug as in rug number 109, between the two towers near the top portion is a person falling.
