Vegetal Red Rug #2
This new war rug is in excellent condition. This rug has some of the best quality wool seen in war rugs. It has been described by the staff at warrug.com as ""super excellent wool."" The wool is Ghazni, which the best wool available in all of Afghanistan. It is completely spun by hand. This war rug is extremely well-knotted with fabulous use of color giving this rug gorgeous luster rarely seen in new rugs. Its color comes from all natural dyes and the quality of the pile is top notch, as is its wool foundation.
The different colors of the rifles is a wonderful touch. The weaver certainly had an artistic flair and expressed herself well.

Ghazni wool red rug with Grenade border
This is an extremely nice rug of this type. This Ghazni wool is wonderfully soft and very lustrous. The color is deep madder and beautiful. There is a nice realism to the Kalashnikovs, the barrels are unusually long. There is also an excellent variety of images in this rug: a land mine near the top, the man sticking out of the APC with 2 long guns, two kinds of helicopters and a pistol. The grenade border is quite unusual as the long rectangle size.
The first impression of this rug is the beautiful color and the top quality wool.
