We've only had the rug about 2 weeks, we wanted it to be gold and it's just perfect. Sort of a deep hay color inside and darker outside. The pictures on the description are different from each other which is deceiving but the color is like the first picture, the one from the main page. Anyway, we've had a couple threads come out already and if you pull a thread, it will pull out the entire length. So I quickly just cut them off, I don't know if it will solve the problem or create more trouble. The price might just be too good to be true.
