Stinger Missile War Rug Made from all Undyed Wool.
This is one of seven rugs we received in early 2014. These are the only examples of this pattern. The imagery is an inventory of weapons used in Afghanistan during the past 35 years, ranging from the Enfield 303's used in the early 1980s, through the land mines, grenades, and artillery that later was repurposed for IEDs, to the stealth drones of the past few years.
The condition of this rug is new and excellent. The quality of the materials and craftsmanship is also excellent.
This is one of the last 4 of these rugs, of which only three will be sold so two can be kept for our archive.

The quality of this rug is excellent both in terms of materials and craftsmanship. Its densely knotted from large threads, so the knot count is high, but not as high as city rugs from Afghanistan or Iran.

Dark Parachutes Stinger Missile Rug
The wool in this rug is all high quality and spun by hand. The colors are all natural dyes. The design is one from 2003 when two examples were woven in full color. This rug is one of seven woven in this earth tone color palette.
These rugs are part of warrug.com's project empowerment. We have helped women in Pakistan set up independent weaving operations, and that is where this rug originates. We work closely with a small group of weavers. This rug came directly from the weavers so the condition is perfect.
The wool is thick, lush and dense. It is soft and susterous. The hand spun wool threads are thick guage so they don't yield the highest knots per inch. The knotting is very dense, as you can see in the photos of the back of the rug, where the design is perfectly clear on the back as on the front.
