Product Description

War rug from Afghanistan dated 1989
From Wikipedia:

The war rug tradition of Afghanistan has its origins in the decade of Soviet occupation of Afghanistan from 1979, and has continued through subsequent military, political and social conflicts. Afghan rug-makers began incorporating the apparatus of war into their designs almost immediately after the Soviet Union invaded their country. They continue to do so today in the wake of the United States' 2001 invasion of Afghanistan.

This carpet is hand-knotted wool pile on a cotton foundation, made in the traditional style of all Oriental Carpets. It is in unused as new condition.

Measurements: aproximately 22 x 30 inches

Knot density: approx. 180-200 knots per square inch, see bottom photo below
