This new war rug is in perfect condition. The wool is of good quality and this rug is particularly well knotted. The colors are nice and consistent throughout.
There are many things in this 9/11 rug that sets it apart from the rest in the pack. First off, there is no map of Afghanistan anywhere on it. This war rug also contains full views of the Twin Towers, which is very nice. The American flag is well drawn, as well. We must point out a rare, disturbing image on this rug, and that is of multiple drawings of people falling out between the two towers. This is seen very infrequently in the 9/11 rugs.
Wool: The wool is soft and fine. Sheen: The sheen is nice and glossy. Handle: The handle on this war rug is very firm. Selvedge: The selvedge is of 2 cord black wool.
Fringe: The fringe on this war rug is 3/4 kilim with overhand knots. Pile: 5mmWarp: White cotton.Weft: Black cotton.
