Peacemaker Rug

History in Knots – Afghan War Rug

Our war rug that we prefer to call Peacemaker Rug depicts the Soviet invasion in 1979, cleverly mixed with age-old botanical and geometric designs are tanks, hand grenades and helicopters. It’s an absolute collector’s item!

It was women from Afghanistan’s Baluchi culture who, soon after the arrival of the Soviets, began to weave the violence they encountered in their daily lives into sturdy, knotted pile wool rugs that had previously featured peaceful, ordinary symbols, such as flowers and birds.
