This rug is nothing like the picture. It's beautiful but the colors are much darker than pictured. I was expecting red, cream, and purple. The rug is mostly a medium shade of mustard brown with deep orangey red, dark indigo, muted purple and a mossy green. It's a beautiful rug, just not at all what I was expecting. It's also a lot thinner than I anticipated. It's a thin, scratchy wool. I considered returning it because it isn't soft at all but It is a really beautiful pattern so I'm keeping it and buying a thick pad to put under it....

Story Behind the Art:
Kilims are known as 'pile-less' rugs; the design is also known as slit-weave. These beautiful designs are achieved by interweaving the various colors of the vertical and horizontal strands of the rug. It can be used as a hanging piece or as a floor covering. Master World-stock weavers in India have managed to replicate this pattern, using the same traditional techniques as their Iranian counterparts. This particular rug was made by Mahmood and his family. They do the entire process of shearing, washing, and dyeing of the wool and weaving of the rugs within their own compound.
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.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

A warm beige is the dominant color of this rug, not blue and red. Blue and red feature in the rug. I love it in my family room. It vacuums nicely, and is just soft enough for my grandchildren to play on. Miss C helped me put it on the floor, and she loves it for playing with her trains. It's a great addition to my home.Read More
