The color of this rug was exactly what I wanted, but that really has been the only plus. I knew it was hand woven but I didn't expect when I vacuumed it I would have to be so careful. I have had the end strands of the rug get sucked up into my vacuum, so that I have to stop vacuuming and reweave the strand back into the rug. At first I thought it only a slight inconvenience but just cleaning it in general has not been easy. I have a dog, so if you don't have pets this rug might work for you or a room that doesn't get much traffic. Even after vacuuming it just doesn't seem to get all the dog hair out. And if one of the strands happens to stick out too much I have caught my dog chewing on it trying to pull on it like it's a rope toy. But even before we adopted our dog the rug still wasn't really working for us. Maybe it was just this rug but from now I think I will steer clear of hand woven.
The color is perfect and accurate to the listing. Although it's not incredibly soft, it looks great in my new bedroom. I hope with time it will soften a more. I am giving this product a good rating because I was not happy with the packaging and the fact that the delivery person left it in the rain which then turned to crazy mugginess. Because I was out of town when it was delivered, I received a soaked rug. After drying it out with a fan over the course of three days, everything seems to be fine now. I just wish, they wouldn't have left it on my porch when I was not home.
This was bought as a gift for my daughter moving into her first apartment. She didn't want to spend a lot on a rug for a place she may not stay long but definitely wanted something bright and casual. Once she singled it out on the site we ordered it for her. She and I were both very happy with the quality and the color and texture are terrific. It is somewhat difficult to clean because of the deep texture but it does make a great color statement.
