Car Style War Rugs

Excellent Old Car Style Rug
This earthy blue and green rug features a repeating pattern of tanks, grenades, and rifles. The earthy oranges, blues, pale yellows, greens, and browns give this rug a muted yet colorful look.
There are some small repairs and a small section on the bottom left side of the rug has been re-piled. This section still has some broken warps.

Green Tanks Brown Helis
The slightly darkened colors in this rug add a ton of dimension. Green, magenta, blue, and orange give this rug a lively vibe. The abrash in the greens, especially in the guard stripes, is interesting and adds depth.
Between the rows of tanks and helicopters are tons of smaller motifs including flowers, small plants, geometric shapes, and chevrons.
