Afghan war rugs are an interesting phenomenon that the rug industry mostly ignored until a 2003 Forbes article made them famous and chic. So many of these war rugs are more collector’s pieces or wall hangings than actual rugs because they are a tad bit, well, crazy looking.

This rug, however, I think is a great exception. You have the elements of a war rug, like tanks and planes, but they are done up in a way that you may not notice until you look more closely. The color scheme is also all earth tones without anything jarring, so it could work in your everyday life. It would be a show-stopped in a study!

The condition of this rug is great with no holes, stains or tears, and all the original parts. The fringe is wool and not perfectly pristine, but for its 30 years of age, it is in great shape. Because of this rug’s construction, it makes it suitable for high traffic areas and such. This is a great piece for a study, and its collector’s value makes it a great gift!
