This war rug is in excellent condition.
This pattern was common in war rugs from1997-98, but the wool, structure, and color were all slightly different. The earlier rugs have long, thick pile made from dry and very dusty wool. They also had longish, natural colored plain weave ends with long, brown fringe. This new war rug keeps the wonderful pattern, but little else. This rug has short pile made from soft and lustrous wool which is nicely oxidized and has a very lovely sheen. The colors in this one are more muted with sienna and olive green and a field that is a cooler color blue than the older rugs. Simply put, this is an excellent war rug.
Wool: The wool is of the highest quality and is super fine, soft, and smooth; giving it an almost waxy feel. Sheen: The sheen has a satin luster. Handle: The handle of this war rug is soft and wonderfully floppy. Selvedge: The selvedge is made of sparse goat hair with a braided overcast.
Fringe: The fringe on this war rug is very soft with a 1/2 kilim braided closure on the top and no kilim on the bottom. Pile: Excellent wool 4mm.Warp: Soft wool.Weft: Grey cotton.
Warp Depression:30 to 45 degrees
