Story Behind the Art:
From the mid 19th-century onward, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. They often favored the bold floral designs with spacious patternes. The rugs are woven using asymmetrical Turkish knots to tie each loop one by one. Besides using wide and bold borders, Mahal rugs had designs based on small repeating floral patterns as well as all-over large scale lattice vine patterns.
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.
This is a very good bargain. I was having trouble finding a blue rug and took a chance on this one based on the description. The colors are not exactly light blue and ivory, however. It may be the natural dyes, but the blue changes under different light, from a gray-blue in daylight to a teal in cool lamp light. It only looks light blue under incandescent lighting. The border is more beige than ivory in my opinion. Nonetheless, it is a very lovely area rug. It has great detailing and there's a soft red flower accent that makes it "pop". I have a red sofa so they go well together. The quality and workmanship is excellent. It looks much more expensive and slightly antiqued because of the softer shades. It isn't exactly muted, just softer color tones. It appears to be well made, and the wool provides warmth on my otherwise cold wood floors. I like that it is both attractive, yet subtle and doesn't overpower the room. Also, after laying the rug down on the living room floor, my cat inspected it carefully, flopped down and gave me a two-paws up approval of it, so what more can I say.
This is a very pretty, plush rug. Its colors are true to the online depiction of muted aqua tones with complementary rust, honey and beige patterns. As with another customer, my cats also loved it - briefly. If your cats, like mine, have carpeted scratching posts, be aware that they may transfer to the carpet and easily tear the tufts out. It was showing wear by the end of the first day. I had to shield it from them by putting it in a cat-free guest room. Fortunately I am happy with it in its new place.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
I was very disappointed with the color of the rug when it arrived because it looks nothing like the picture. I expected it to be a true blue but it more of a light aqua. I would return it but for the price of around $$$ it is just easier to keep it than try to ship it back.
