Pantone's seasonal trend and color forecasts are used by designers of every kind on every continent. This year's trends are brought to life with the new Oriental Weavers flat-weave collection for Pantone Universe. Matrix is a handcrafted, wool line that features simple, graphic geometric patterns in colors carefully selected for their brilliance and dynamism. Flat-woven rugs are unique due to their method of construction. Unlike knotted wool rugs, flat-woven rugs are made on a loom. They are thin with a very low pile, making them ideal for an entryway where door clearance is an issue. However, they are extremely durable and many are reversible for extended life and beauty.
