Called Afghan War Rugs these are like your typical traditional Afghan rug (think browny colours and complicated intricate design) but when you look closer these are not normal shapes used to make up the pattern they are full of little tanks and grenades and alike.
They have become hugely popular over the past year or so as they have begun to be remade by craftsmen in Afghanistan. Today an old one will set you back thousands of pounds but new ones can be found for a few hundred on the likes of eBay.
These more hostile rugs were first made in 1979 when the USSR invaded Afghanistan and are made by hand using vegetable dyes. The way that craft is being used here to tell many stories that run from 1979 right through to a few years ago makes them a huge artistic social commentary of the times.
