War rug "At first glance they look like the rugs woven for hundreds of years by the tribal peoples of Afghanistan. But instead of traditional abstract motifs such as water jugs, chickens, blossoms and horses, these rugs depict tanks, paisley-shaped helicopters, jets, hand grenades and Kalashnikov rifles." source Forbes.com

Check out the war rugs with the NYC world trade towers. Don't know why but I find these rugs really appealing. I'd love to have one!
