I bought a small one to see if I'd like the color, density, etc,. and I do. I'll be buying a larger rug...and now I've got a nice entrance rug to match. The colors are not brilliant in this rug but they certainly do not look washed out to me. As an artist, I'd agree with the reviewer who said the tones are cool rather than warm- she's right. If you want goldens, ambers, and such..this may not please you. I'm in an apartment that has that "apartment beige" carpeting-- and this does not fight with it. In fact, it works perfectly. I don't know about the shedding yet...
Such a beautiful rug but I had to return it because it smelled so awful. I think it must have been in a moldy basement. I could smell it before I opened the package. I ordered a replacement but it had the same problem. Returned that one and gave up. So disappointed because I ordered the same rug in the 2.3x8 size and it was fine, no odor issues.
I was very hesitant to purchase rugs online due to paying for return shipment. But the past reviews of these rugs lead me to take a chance. I love them!!! They are very rich looking! The rugs are thick and colors are a maroon/brown. Exactly what I wanted and needed. Thank you past reviewers!!!
I did not realize the country of origin, and I think it's made by those children sold into slavery by impoverished parents trying to save the lives of their other children. These kids don't get sunlight or dental work or playtime. I was sorry I bought it, but the quality is good. I should have sent it back. I feel evil now to ave supported this.
This rug looked a bit more orange to me but the main color is more burgundy which was even better than I had thought! I ordered two matching runners and one area rug. They are all beautiful plush wool rugs. I love all of them! One arrived before the estimated arrival date and the other three came as promised. The value for this rug is amazing and I would whole heartedly recommend Overstock! Thanks!
This is a thick wool rug with a nice walk. It seemed like it was a good quality rug. I purchased this rug 05-29-2012. It has started to shed a significant amount of sticky white fine sandy powder. After doing research, that it the glue that is holding the tufts in place. The rug shows little wear. It hasn't lost any significant tufting yet, but the powder is very sticky when I wipe it up. A hand tufted rug has a certain life. If the stock is old the life is shortened. I have purchased 9 hand tufted wool rugs from Overstock, and have been happy with the price and variety. This is the only one that is doing this so far.
