Origin: PakistanStyle:Red Rugs, a war rug classic. Tribe: Turkman
The condition of this new war rug is good. This is an Afghan war rug that was washed using a special technique in Pakistan before it was shipped to us. It has a nice abrash to it.
The staff at warrug.com all agree that the pattern seen in this war rug is exceptional. The continuity of the mixed geometric colors used in the helicopters, hand-grenades, and along the bullet border is lovely. The tribal aspect of small mistakes, such as the writing in the tanks all going in one direction except for one tanks text in the bottom left row, clearly shows the beautiful juxtaposition and the brilliant traditional appeal of nomadic, tribal weaving versus the ""perfection"" of common, Persian city carpets.
Wool: The wool is dry from the special wash used overseas. The wool is nice and strong, quite thick and very dense. Sheen: There is minimal sheen, which is common in new war rugs, and will improve over time as the wool oxidizes. Handle: The handle of this war rug is firm. Selvedge: The selvedge consists of 2 cord wool.
Fringe: The 1 1/2 inch fringe on this war rug also has 1 inch kilim brown wool with 1 band of braided sumac with overhand knots. This is extremely beautiful and lends to its durability and tribal appeal. Pile: Wool.Warp: White cotton.Weft: Black wool.
Warp Depression:Mostly 75 degrees
