It’s rare to find war rugs in use


Here’s evidence of a war rug discovered in use in Afghanistan. Mr Mohammad Omar is a textile seller on Sarak-t-Darb Iraq street in Herat, who had this war rug serving as a door mat at the entrance of his shop. Mr Omar bought it from “village people who were selling their carpets door to door”. It’s worn, and damaged, and extremely dirty, and clearly is not regarded as being of any great value. It may well be that such rugs were once made for sale, at the lower end of the market, and when they didn’t sell, they eventually found a use in such prosaic circumstances. Nobody I have asked knows of any in use in domestic situations.
