The nymph Oinone is the first wife of Paris, a Trojan prince.
They live a blissful life; still Paris abandons her for Helena, the queen of Sparta. When Paris is wounded by a poisoned arrow in the Trojan war, he turns to Oinone again, begging her to save his life with her healing powers. Her wounded pride makes her refuse, only to profoundly regret it later. Discreet and soft, this velvet carpet is a homage to the peaceful times about which Oinone reminisces. Its smooth surface holds the souvenirs of tranquil and steadfast love. You may want to choose Oinone in a fiery red. It is the colour of the wine her name evokes, and a reminder of her passion.
