This is a great rug, colors as expected, nice and thick... however, I was expecting that since other reviewers commented that the rug was thick, that it was also soft like most rugs of this price range that i have purchased.. i think the reason is that the height of the fibers is not consistent, its a random variation, and each fiber has been twisted so much before tying that it leaves the surface pleasant to look at, but strange on the feet. I am happy with this runner, but will not be ordering a room size for the next room.
This runner sits in front of my clothes closet(s), which run down the short hallway into my master bedroom. It is thick, attractive with a colorful (muted greens w/some red accents) pattern; it is a very nice introduction to our bedroom. I had been looking for something like this to replace a dull, shedding rug. This is it!
