My girlfriend and I loved this rug the minute we saw it. We wanted to buy something that popped in comparison to our dark living room furniture. I was slightly disappointed that the orange was more of a rust color, but it still worked with our living room and looks great. The rug sheds, so I wouldn't use the vacuum directly onto it, but rather the extended hose attachment to give it a light vacuum. If you can, beating the rug would probably be safer....

Story Behind the Art
This rug was created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village. These rugs are made by Mahmood Alam and his family. They are hand-tufted in their own homes, and everyone in the family helps out in the process of rug making, from his wife, Shakiba, to the youngest daughter, Jamila. They process the wool, themselves in their home, prior to making the rugs. All washing, spinning and dyeing of the wool are done in their home.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

We love this rug and it defines a new seating area that we created. The colors are vibrant, just as they appear in the photo. We have ordered 5 rugs from Overstock with mixed luck. This one was just what we had hoped it would be.Read More
I love this rug - it's amazingly beautiful and the colors, though darker than on the site, are really vibrant.Read More
This is a great rug for the price. It brings a pop of color to my foyer, looks like it's a decent quality and is not very pricey. Perfect for an entryway.Read More
This rug is lovely! The color is bright and brings a new life to our den. It did have a lot of lint initially, but vaccuumed up easily. NO strage odors as mentioned in other reviews. VERY pleased with this product. Delivery was exceptionally quick!Read More
This was my first experience ordering a rug on Overstock and I'm not entirely thrilled. Overstock's order processing was superb - I ordered Saturday and received the rug on Tuesday. And in terms of product quality, the rug seems fairly good - it's not especially soft underfoot, but the weave is dense and firm with no loose yarn or holes. However, there were some loose threads around the outer borders of the rug that came out when I vacuumed. Also, unlike another reviewer, my rug *does* emit a strong odor. I have the windows open now to let it air out. One thing that is not entirely evident from the photos is the background is the only part of the rug that is "tufted", while the floral pattern part of the rug is actually looped. I find the looped part a little softer to walk on than the tufted part, but overall the rug certainly doesn't feel plush and soft like some higher quality rugs would. Maybe it will soften up a little over time. My biggest problem with the rug is the colors. When I unrolled the carpet I was shocked because it was so dirty-looking, not bright and warm like I was expecting. I'm not sure whether the carpet really IS dirty or what. The colors are not at all like in the photo. The background color is more like a brick red. The leaves are closer to a sage/olive green with a muddy tan/yellowish border, not a creamy yellow at all, and the blue is more like a dark wedgewood and not a sky blue. The gold in the middle of the flowers is more like a mustard brown. It is much darker than the online photos would suggest. I'm pretty disappointed by how inaccurate Overstock's pictures are (is anyone over there even checking to see whether the photos they post reflect the product??!) but without a car it seems it will be too difficult to return the rug. It's a pity, I would have loved to have a rug that looked like the one in the photo because it would have gone perfectly with my decor. Ah well.Read More
I was hesitant to buy such a large and heavy item thinking: "what if I don't like it, it will cost a fortune to return"...wrong! This rug is beautiful. Thick and very colorful. Not sure about the washing will have to research that. I bought it at the right time as now the price has gone up. Very heavy when it arrived, we had to pull it in the door. Glad there wasn't any shipping or I'm sure it would have cost a fortune based on the weight! I was worried it would be all curled up since it arrived rolled up, but it was so heavy it only curled a little on the very end and I put heavy books along the edge for several days to keep it flat. It goes very nicely between my floral loveseat and brown sofa. Have received many compliments on it. In several reviews I noticed that folks had comments about odors on their rugs they purchased from OS, there was no odor on this rug and it sheds a little but that should pass with frequent vacuuming. I also noticed the rug comes in three other sizes. This is the perfect size for a living room or sitting area with a European or Italian/Tuscany style decor, even in a bedroom it would be lovely.Read More
