Always classic stripe

There are so many ways to make a navy stripe fresh and interesting. Here we have variation within a framework, 6-7" dark stripes broken up by thin white stripes. This could make a great hallway runner and easily incorporate several new colors.

Why not Ombre?

Amy Tyson

Our Seattle showroom, Michael Folks, came to us with a Lark Textile Design sample that our predecessor Janet had designed when she owned the looms. We created a couple of new color options to match the style of her original rag rug cutting.  The client wanted some rich colors to go with their floral fabric. It was a bit of a challenge to strategize a method to make the ombre colors line up but it turned out great.

This project was a joy to execute!
