There's something so cheerful about a stripe. This one plays it cool and keeps it subtle with gentle, barely-there gradations of red. The Persian red, made with madder root and the outer pomegranate skin, is so potent that even third or fourth dye baths yield saturated color. You'll find endless fascination with the details and shifting lines this rug embraces. It's much more than first meets the eye, in that first moment of cheer.
