Story Behind the Art:
This rug was created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village by Mahmood and his family. All washing, spinning and dyeing of the wool are done in their home. The weaving technique is hand-tufted, which is a rug making process where weavers insert yarn into the rug backing with a hand held tufting gun to push and pull the threads through a pre-woven grid foundation. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the ends of the threads for a softer, plusher pile.
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.
Decent carpet - thick and soft wool. Not the tightest weave but good for the price. Mainly the color is completely off from the picture. The color is overall a drab tan-brown. The background color is not at all ivory or cream as shown in the picture, and the gold and other colors designs in the carpet don't stand out because they are so similar to the background tan-brown. The picure was apparently taken with a bright flash. Carpet is fine if you want a medium dark carpet IMO. I need creamy ivory or white so we have to return. Never a problem to return with Overstock though. We have bought a half dozen rugs here and are really happy with the service.
