Drone Rugs

Woven by Afghan Turkmen wit vegetable dye colors and hand spun wool.

This is the third batch of the original drone rugs, and the first of these rugs woven in Afhganistan. As Pakistan unofficially revoked the Afghan's welcome, these weavers returned to Afghanistan after more than a generation. When the weavers settled back in Afghanistan they commenced weaving the last patterns they wove in Afghanistan, these drone rugs.

The first batch of drone rugs was three pieces, the second batch was 11 pieces, and this batch was 18 pieces, and these will probably be the last of these designs. The wool and colors of the Afghan woven drone rugs are different than the Peshawar style of earlier rugs, so the colors and wool reflect these rugs unique origin and production.

"Don't be fooled by cheap imitations!" -T.W.

The large pieces are signed, dated, and all come with a certificate of authenticity. Truly original!
