Story Behind the Art: This rug was created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village. These rugs are made by Mahmood 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.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
The rug feels good and looks good -- the curves are a bit more uneven (with sharper turns) than I expected from the picture, but that makes sense for a hand-made product. It's shedding quite a bit initially, but from the other reviews it sounds like that will stop soon. I hope so!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes -- matches well, though the beige half is just slightly more dark/subdued than I expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality wool, thick and comfortable
It took me quite a while to finally open the package so I was very surprised to discover no Gold Border! The Ivory is more like a Tan, but the deeper color works well in my Family Room. A bit disappointed that the color variance apparently applies to the missing Gold Border! There is no border of any kind! Just the Tan and Brown colors. Fortunately, in spite of the missing border, the contemporary design of the rest of the rug is true to the online description. All in all, the rug is more versatile without the Gold border. So in the final analysis, I love my rug! It fits perfectly with my furniture and other Family Room décor. As for the shedding, there was lots when I first vacuumed it. But the other reviewer indicates that will not last too long. I hope not.
