Although I put a lot of value in other's reviews I hardly ever take the time to write one of my own. This rug though is an exception. It is absolutely gorgeous--from the description I knew it had some silk in it, but the amount is pretty unbelievable for the price. The silk results in bright, vibrant colors that really pop. Rugs like this, and of this size, would normally sell for over $1500. Totally recommend this one~!
