I like to actually have my products for a while to give an accurate review. This rug is gorgeous, and you can tell it will last a life time. Arrived within a week of ordering, and was packaged where no water or liquids could damage in shipping. The colors where not completely true to description but ended up working for my space. The background was to be tan but it's really tan with a hint of green. Then you have black, a variety of several tan/brown strips & patches, and the red with a hint of purple.
