This rug is a super value. The colors are true to the picture online, and are vibrant, yet when combined together present a mellow tapestry. The animal figures give the rug great interest and evoke favorable comments. Everyone that's seen it asks if it is a tribal rug. This is the first woven, kilim-type rug that I've owned and the lack of pile took some getting used to. I also ordered the premium carpet pad from Overstocks but it doesn't give the rug much cushioning. Nevertheless, a tremendous value that adds so much to the room.
