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.
Wool: The wool is soft and fine.
Sheen: The sheen is nice and glossy.
Handle: The handle on this war rug is very strong and firm.
Selvedge: The selvedge consists of 2 cord natural brown wool.
Fringe: The fringe on this war rug is of 1/2 kilim with Persian closure.
