This newish Afghan war rug is good. The pile is full and the wool is very nice, and the white wool is looks to be hand spun. The colors go well together. The white offsets the blue particularly well. The best thing about this rug is the images. The childishly drawn trucks at the top and the bottom are really great. The tanks are stylized, and the guns are pointed up in retreat. The animals and the urns and the dotted lines are the best, they accent the war motifs and locate them in a more traditional environment.
This rug has a flaw one finds in some tribal rugs, which is that some weft threads are pulled too tight and the rug puckers a bit and does not lay perfectly flat.
Wool: Very nice new wool. Thick , dense, and soft. Sheen: The sheen on this war rug is good. Handle: Floppy, but more firm than most Baluchis because it is densely knotted. Selvedge: The selvedge is braided goat hair overcast, but the way the braid sits on the cord is unusual. The braid forms a ridge up the middle of the selvedge.
Fringe: Half inch wool kilim, braided closure, two inch fringe. Pile: 6mm wool, with the white wool most likely hand spunWarp: Natural wool.Weft: Charcoal grey wool.
Warp Depression:Mostly full warp depression
