This rug is unique and very good quality. Have already had many complements. I was initially disappointed in the background color. It is not ivory as the description states and as shown in the photo. The background is a medium beige. The beige background has grown on me as it is probably more practical than ivory. Lovely rug, but if the ivory color is important to you then you won't be happy. If you are looking for a well made rug with an interesting pattern and the beige background is ok, go for it.
