War rugs are typically woven by refugees which originated during Soviet occupation Afghanistan starting around 1979, and lasting for just over one decade.  During this time, locals rug weavers began integrating details of the conflicts with images of people, guns, grenades, helicopters and airplanes into their works.  These rugs were not particularly graphic in bloodshed, but rather documented the influence of weaponry and tools of invasion.
