Kitfox Design Launches GWOT War Rugs

Kitfox dresses up your digs with the Global War On Terror with the launch of the GWOT War Rugs.

Michigan-based Kitfox Design, creators of many gun-adjacent items like firearms cookie cutters, patches, and Vietnam throws announced a pre-order for their latest, a GWOT war rug.

Available in two sizes, throw (54×72-inches) and queen (62×84-inches), the GWOT blanket continues the legacy of Afghan war rugs by integrating weapons and other items emblematic of the Global War On Terror right into the design. Covering both Iraq and Afghanistan, it has M4 carbines equipped with ACOGs, Iraqi Tabuk sniper rifles, AKSU-74s, M9 pistols, helicopters, and more.

Not cheaply printed in China, these GWOT war rugs are woven from 100% cotton right here in the USA.

Pre-orders for both sizes are open until Monday, May 16th and delivery is expected 6-8 weeks from now. Yes, it's a wait, but if you want Walmart speed you're probably going to get Walmart quality.

You can check out the GWOT war rug as well as Kitfox's GWOT line of products (like MRE dog poop bags) here.

In the meantime, here's what Kitfox Design has to say about it:

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. – Kitfox Design Group is excited to announce their latest throw blanket project, the Global War on Terror Throw themed blanket and collection.

The Global War on Terror Throw Blanket is woven in a small family-owned textile mill located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The throw features four iconic rifles from the GWOT Era, along with helicopters, supply drops, and Rip-Its. The firearms featured on the blanket are the AKS-74U (“Krinkov”), M4A1, M16A4, Iraqi Tabuk, the Beretta M9 and the Tokarev. The throw blankets are made on European Jacquard looms with roughly eight miles of American-made, 100% cotton yarn.

“After the success of the Vietnam Throw, I knew I needed to create something to honor the people who had served more recently.” said Sara Westman, the owner of Kitfox Design Group and illustrator behind the blanket. “Near the end of 2021 I opened up a survey for my friends, followers, and customers to contribute memories. It meant a lot to get input from so many wonderful people and help drive my inspiration even further. I don’t believe I could have completed this blanket without everybody’s help. This project was a lot heavier and closer to home than the last. I grew up watching my friends' parents and later my own friends serve in Iraq and Afghanistan,”

Pre-orders open May 6th at 9 am Central and will close at 11:59 pm Central on May 16th. The orders will begin shipping roughly 6-8 weeks after pre-orders close.

The blanket is launching in two sizes, a throw which measures roughly 54”x72” and a queen measuring roughly 62”x84”. The blankets will retail at $125 and $150 + shipping respectively and will ship worldwide. All orders placed on May 6th will receive an early bird gift. In addition to the blanket, Kitfox will also be launching a small collection of Global War on Terror-themed hard goods and pet items. Products include a thrashable Shred-It Energy dog toy filled with crinkle paper, a Catnip Poppy toy, and MRE poo bags.”

“I worked really hard to find some products that are outside of the industry standard to complete the collection. We had so many people sending photos of their cats and dogs enjoying our previously released Vietnam Throw that it only made sense to include pets with this release.
