Firstly this is not a handmade carpet, it is a machine made carpet. Secondly, not the same colors, thirdly because it is machine made, design is not detailed enough. Flowers do not look like flowers etc. Cheap rug made in a factory back in India. DONT BUY THIS.
We needed to replace our 9X12 wool rug for the living room, but wanted a smaller rug so that we could show off the old oak floors. We chose this one, and are very pleased. The color is rich. It feels very thick and soft under your feet. It hasn't been a heavy shedder, as some wool rugs can be. I like things that are a little different or unique, and this color/pattern isn't one you see everywhere, which I love. We also purchased the matching small throw rug, to go in front of the door. It brings together the French Country theme we currently have in that room. Also, just so you know, it isn't stated on the website but this rug is made by SAFAVIEH, a company that makes very high end products. We have SAFAVIEH wool rugs in nearly every room of our house. They wear well, and look Great, even after much use and abuse from our Great Danes and our grandchildren :o) Another great purchase from overstock!!

The price, size and shipping costs, were good. But the colors of the rug were not what I expected. The ivories and beige's on the borders were very muted, not bright as in the photo, as well as the center medallion, giving me cause to return it.
