Belouch, W Afghanistan

War rug, 2000s


1.3 m by 2.5 m

The fine weave in this example is by far the best I have ever seen and is consistent with the best Belouch weaving.

War rug are a combination of traditional rug craft and modern influence. An interesting development of carpet styles which has occurred many times over the centuries.

Note the helicopter gunships and armoured personnel carriers in the main boarder and the Belouch lucky charm amulets strewn around the main field of vases and flowers.
