This new war rug is in perfect condition. The unusual wool is clumpy and dense, allowing each knot to keep on its tuft. Out of many war rugs, it almost appears over-dyed at first, but then the viewer is taken in by the beautifully rich colors. The sky blue is particularly succulent, as each color gives way to a completely different texture.
The images are striking. The drawing is well done with a bit of a childish edge in a refreshingly bold way. This is evident in the map and the red ""Afghanistan"" text. So many war rugs contain multiple weaponry, but the juxtaposition of the Soviet armaments of tanks and APC mixed with the American M-16s and Chinook helicopters against the flecked-green mountain is simply gorgeous. A wonderful find for anyone!
There is a rare stripe-like look on the back from a thick wool double weft.
Wool: The wool is very nice with an unusual diverse feel between the colors. Sheen: The light field is a little shiny while the sky blue is matte. Quite lovely. Handle: The handle on this war rug firm and bounces back when folded. Selvedge: The selvedge is of 2 cord natural wool.
Fringe: The minimal fringe on this war rug is of 1/2 cotton kilim with overhand knots. Pile: 7mm wool.Warp: Cotton.Weft: 2 cord natural wool.
Warp Depression:Shallow Corduroy 15 Degrees
