The condition of this new Afghan rug is excellent. By all technical means, this has no commonly known ""war"" images of weapons. However, we feel they are important art forms to be included in a war rug collection. This is because these rugs are derived from war rugs, and also because many maps were first charted for reasons either for war, or as a result of war. Territories and borders are often the only, and oldest, reasons for war.
This map rug showcases a compass, flag of Afghanistan, and a map with the Provinces written in Farsi. Also in Farsi are the names of the surrounding countries. In fact, the only text written in English is ""Made in Afghanistan"" and ""2002"". Please allow us to point out the flowers in the corners of the rug.
There is some minimal, typical bleeding of dark into light colors.
Wool: The wool is of good quality. Sheen: The sheen is minimal, which is typical of these new rugs. This will improve over time as the wool oxidizes. Handle: The handle of this Afghan rug is firm. Selvedge: The selvedge consists of 2 cord flat wool warp wrap.
Fringe: The 2 inch fringe on this war rug has Persian closure. Pile: Wool 5mm.Warp: White cotton.Weft: Black cotton.
Warp Depression:Full Warp Depression, double knotted
