A question I'm frequently asked via email is where to find striped woven cotton rugs similar in style to the one seen in Carolina Irving's living room. A good place to hunt is Dash & Albert. Starting tomorrow the company will offer customers the option to order cotton woven, wool hooked and polypropylene rugs online. I think you will be pleased with the prices. (My mother has one of the striped cottons and finds it super-durable.)
Just F.Y.I., the appealing striped rugs we see in Vogue Living or World of Interiors are often antique Indian dhurries (heavy flat-woven cotton or wool cloths).
