Due to the vegetable dyes used on this rug, the colors have a beautiful striated tip fading pattern-- the navy blues have faded to a variety of greens and lighter blues, and the reds are striped with pinks and creams.
This rug is super soft and plush, and the colors add interest to the rows of weapons and military machinery. The border is composed of multicolored grenades on a red background.
This rug was produced by Boston rug-dealer Yala as part of their Bakarat fair trade program. Author would speculate that they were probably designed by Ron O'Calahan.
