This is one of seven rugs we received directly from the Afghan Turkmen weavers who wove them in Pakistan.
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.
The imagery in this rugs is an inventory of the many of the weapons used throughout the last 35 years of war in Afghanistan ranging from the Enfield 303's of the early 1980's to the stealth drones used in 2000's
Wool: The colors come from an experiment in using undyed wool. None of the wool has been artificially colored, but the wool is the color of the sheep. The wool is washed then carded and spun by hand. Sheen: Very good, especailly for a new rug. The light color is particularly lusterous Handle: Sturdy and firm Selvedge: One thick cord overcast in undyed light colored wool.
Fringe: White cotton, about two inches closed with Persian style closure. Pile: 6mm deep pileWarp: White cottonWeft: cotton
Warp Depression:About 60 degree warp depression. So the depressed node of the not is only barely visible between rows of raised nodes.
