This is a great Bokhara rug--which is a classic and timeless design. Any other I have looked at costs at least $*** and this is similar quality. Soft, lush, and wonderful rich burgundy color with some slate and ivory accents.
The carpet color and size were so good for me--and of course, for a 10 x 14 ft. area rug, the price was great. I am concerned about future piling of the rug. It does not have a soft feel underneath your feet (which you do not notice when wearing shoes), and the cross-stitch they mention in the description is just that--you see the tiny stitches and that is fine--but with years of wear and tear, I am concerned how long the carpet will last before having to replace it.
I had looked at this rug or one very similar at a store in Virginia, the quality of that rug was clearly hand knotted and the reverse side looked identical to the front except without the short pile and the wool was very qood quality. The store had sold this rug when I went back to purchase it. I found this rug on Overstock, looked identical; however the quality was terrible and it was $XXX more. A good quality hand knotted rug should have less than 1/2" pile, this rug is thick and looks very much like a tufted rug rather than a hand knotted rug. Just arrived today, will be shipped back on Monday. Not paying this kind of money for poor quality and very doubtful it is hand knotted. Not as advertized at all. Color was not as pictured either.
