I would not have given this product 1 star if it had been advertised correctly as FAKE / FAUX shag! The picture looks like what shag looks like - real shag. But it's not. It's a weird fake shag that looks like a craft project, with strips of (apparently) cotton fiber that look similar to tissue paper, secured to the backing in a way that makes them try to stand up and look like the yarn fibers that make up real shag. You can see the backing in rows between the strips. Too bad O does not let you post pics. Not only does it look BIZARRE as a rug but it's not worth the price. The only place this might work is in a kid or teen's room since it has a casual, funky look, with full disclosure that it's fake shag and with a lower price. As for color, it's lighter than what I see on screen but a pretty light blue that would have been fine. Slightly lighter than the "Sky Blue" color of the Solid Insulated Thermal Blackout 84" Curtain Panel Pair that I bought it to go with (http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Solid-Insulated-Thermal-Blackout-84-Curtain-Panel-Pair/2946005/product.html). Packaging was OK, but it was just the rug in a cardboard box with no plastic wrapping around the rug and no other packing materials. It was folded with the fake shag on the inside and the back is fairly sturdy so it was fine. The back side is a flat weave that is very pretty in its own right. Flat weave doesn't have the comfort I'm looking for and it wouldn't look right upside down anyway because you would see the fake shag sticking out from the perimeter underneath. One thing I'm happy with is that O will pay for return shipping if you choose online credit in lieu of refund. Wish I had known that before I made another order but I'm going to order other stuff so I took the credit.Read More
