I have a number of rugs from around the world. I needed this exact size for a particular area in my home. I was very happy with the rug when it arrived. I was just in Turkey and looked a lot like the one's I saw that originated from Iran. The quality is great. Soft and thick. Not flimsy like the photo shows. Also the color is not quite as red as this... more of a wine-like color than a fire-engine red.
