The colors and pattern of the rug are nice and as pictured, but the description says this has a .5" pile height and is soft to walk on. The truth is this is a flat-weave rug and the pile height is .25" or less. Also the edges aren't bound and after 6 months of indoor use the corners are unraveling slightly. The pile has also noticeably flattened. I wish I would have gone with my instincts and returned it right away when I saw the pile height wasn't as described, but it seemed like it would be such a hassle because of the size of the rug that I didn't.
