This is a very unusual rug. Composition is unusual but not totally unique. The pickup truck image is unique, particularly with the heavy machine gun mounted in back of truck. Please note the drawing of the second heavy machine gun. I propose this rug is woven by a man. The drawing of second gun could only be done by someone with detailed knowledge of this weapon. The weaver must know and be comfortable with the inner workings of this weapon to be able to depict it in such detail.
Wool: Good, shiny. High grade rug wool. Sheen: Nice shine. Handle: Typical Baluch. Floppy. Selvedge: Braided goat hair overcast
Fringe: Short kilim Pile: WoolWarp: Double wefted grey cottonWeft: Natural wool
Warp Depression:20 Degree Depressed
