Red Rug Sub-Groups

Warrug.com’s selection of small red rugs illustrates sub groups of red rugs well.

‘Classic Red Rug




“[not] Vegetable Dye”



Modern [true] Vegetable Dye

‘Five Genades’ (random name but most popular style)



‘Squashed Helicopter’ Style’




‘Camoflage Helicopter’ named for harlequin-esque rendering on helicopters. These were readil available in 1999 and 2000. They are like “Classic” red rugs, but not quite as finely knotted.




“Fat RPG’s” (for lack of a better name)

About Kevin

Kevin Sudeith is the war rug collector who built warrug.com. After starting to collect Afghan rugs, he began selling regular and war rugs to better study war rugs and their historical origins. Sudeith learned how war rugs related to traditional Afghan tribal and workshop rugs as well as the broader Turkmen and Persian rug traditions.
