|Red Rug with Magenta Accents|
This Red War Rug is warm and vibrant. The Kalashnikovs and tanks depicted have pops of a bright fuchsia. Overall, the colors are quite contradictory to the imagery. A single row of rainbow bullets line the edges. The reason for the numbers is not totally understood but are believed to be an arbitrary list of what the Pakistani women hypothesized to be on the sides of Russian tanks.

|Red War Rug with Planes Shaped as Human Female Figures|
Beautiful rug. Nicely drawn. The range of image sizes works well: large AK47's, medium size helicopters and tanks, and small airplanes in the background. Good colors. How the topmost tank is loosely drawn is excellent. It is more round than most and it has lots of character.
The bottom of this rug flages out, so it's not very square
This rug is in new condition. Red Rugs were woven in Pakistan during the 1990s until the international community forced the Taliban out of Afghanistan in 2001. The weavers of these rugs were Afghan refugees who returned to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban. The Red rugs currently available have been sitting in warehouses since they were woven in the 1990's so their condition is excellent and like new.

|Red Tora Bora with Tanks|
The wool is better in these second generation Large Tora Bora rugs. The initial group laid flat, but the wool was lesser quality. This wool is fluffier and stands up better. Along with the pattern, there are speckled green mountains.
Text says 'Afghanistan' in tan on red at the top.
