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 first thing I noticed when unrolling this carpet was the size of the patch work. I thought (and was hoping), the patches would be in smaller squares. But they were the normal size (like tiled floors), and it really didn't "grab" me. Then I noticed a crinkled area on the carpet, but thought it would straighten out. It was bugging me so much, that I turned it over, and saw that the crinkle was in the back. So I got my nifty little steamer out, and I was able to get the crinkles out. I also didn't realize how high the carpet was (tufted meant nothing to me), so whenever I walked on it, I felt as though I was walking on another level of carpeting. I didn't like that feel.
This is not a bad carpet. Other than the defect I had to fix, it may work very well for others (design, carpet thickness, etc).
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Pretty much, but I thought they were a bit darker
Please tell us about the quality of the product. For the most part, it was okay. But mine had a defect.
How accurate was the sizing? I didn't measure, but it was pretty large.
