Drone Rugs

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

Because of sanctions on Afghanistan, the rugs below are the last drone rugs available for the moment. To be notified when more become available, please contact us.. Your support is what motivates us, so thank you.

2017 was 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 same patterns they wove in Pakistan, like these drone rugs.

The first batch of drone rugs was three pieces, the second batch was eleven pieces, the third batch was eighteen pieces, and the medallion rugs were four pieces. 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.

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

To order, please contact us with the rug number you want, and we will send you an invoice. Shipping included in lower 48 contiguous US states.

This rug seems to be a riff on antique (and contemporary) Turkmen designs known by the name of the 19th century town where tribal and workshop rugs were consolidated, Bokara, or Bukhara. Warrug doesn't traffic in antiques, but the rug in this link is an example of an Ersari Turkment rug
