The title of this rug and the photos suggest the color is red. But it is a deep terracotta, which is much too feminine a color for the room I was putting it in. It is a lovely, thick rug. Thankfully, I ordered the 3x5 to check to see if I wanted to order the large rug. Much easier to return.
This rug is absolutely beautiful. The colors are rich and true to the photo. Very little shedding, even when placed in a high traffic area. The wool is very soft and plush. I have several of these rugs, and have never been disappointed with a single one.
I bought both the 3 X 5 rug for an entryway and the matching runner for a nearby hallway. I was wonderfully surprised at the vibrancy of the colors, the weight and quality of both pieces and the depth of the pile, giving a soft, rich feel underfoot. Beautiful rugs.
I purchased this rug and I am very happy with how it looks! Beautiful. You will need to vaccum it often at first. It does have its pile come off in little whispy fluffs. That doesn't detract from the rug. I wouldn't hesitate purchasing another.
