Rug arrived as expected. Color is pretty true to online pictures. Appearance/Quality from a distance are very good. Just don't get close. The description/title of this product says "Handmade." I'm not really sure what part of this product is "Handmade", but it is clearly a machine made rug where the pile is glued to a backing, not tufted. The description also says wool. Perhaps partially true, but it also contains some very coarse jute-like fibers. No expert, but not like any wool I've ever seen. Have had them in place for a couple weeks, vaccumed about 8 times, and they are still shedding quite a bit. Fibers stick in my socks when I walk on them, was cleaning a piece of furniture near the floor and got one of the stray fibers in my eye. If you want an expensive but goodlooking rug for a low traffic area, then this one is great. I wouldn't recommend for high traffic or for kids/pets who might lay/play on.
Very nice rug. The colors are quite different than the photo, which is a good thing, as I wanted a black and ivory rug. The photo makes it look like a black runner with a tan border, but the written description of the colors is correct - black with an ivory border.Very fast and cheap shipping. I've ordered from Home Decorator's Collection Outlet a lot, but their shipping costs are outrageous. Guess they've lost me to Overstock. com!
