|This rug is in new condition. Red Rugs were woven in the 1990s in Pakistan 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 Rug wool is mill spun and dyed in bulk, so it rarely shows much abrash. This rug though has an unusual and beautiful touch of abrash running across the middle.
