Afghan War Rugs are just one of many ways that Afghanistan's turbulent history has impacted its fascinating culture. This particular design features the Twin Towers. The events of 9/11/2001 had a profound impact on Afghanistan, and lead to 20 years of conflict between the USA, NATO allies and Taliban forces. Needless to say, Afghans have a lot to tell the world about their past two decades.

The symbolism behind these rugs is very intriguing. They represent the non-involvement in the 9/11 attacks by Afghans, many Afghans feeling frustrated by the NATO occupation of their country following the terror attacks. The American and Afghan flags on this rug are bridged by a peace dove, symbolizing peace between these two nations.

These rugs were handmade in Afghanistan by expert craftsmen. Each takes between 7-10 days to complete and is a true work of art. Each rug will exhibit some uniqueness, including changes of color, design variations and other aesthetic differences.

Rug Care (This Is Important)

These rugs are most often hung up on walls as decoration. Given the time and skill it takes to make even just one rug, most Afghans don't use them as doormats or in places they're likely to be damaged.

We do not recommend washing these rugs in washing machines. The time-honored tradition of cleaning your Afghan rug by beating it with a stick is the best option for taking care of these beautiful artworks.
