I chose this rug because it was the right size for my entry. I have always bought wool and even have a couple old karistans but could not find one this size. The picture online shows a very faded version of the actual product. it is a warm deep golden tan with vibrant contrast colors. it is not thick or heavy so four stars. It does LOOK great down and makes my entry pop. hides everything, pine needles etc, that might get tracked in. delivery was quik and it cost less than the cleaning fee for a wool area rug.
