Afghan War Rugs

Keeping the war theme Afghan war rugs include hand woven images from both the Soviet and the current ongoing conflict. Little is know as to why the locals produce them, but they certainly change the warm and homely meaning of a rug. look here for the Fyke collection of rugs online.

  1. Could the reasons for making them have something to do with
    A- there being a long tradition of Rugmaking there.
    B- a long and nearly constant state of war (in one way or another) for several thousand years?
