This rug came via UPS wrapped in plastic to protect it from soiling, etc. I was thrilled by the quality and workmanship of this rug. The rug colors are true to the picture and so is the print. The rug does not shead much and lays perfectly flat against the floor with no ends turning up. The rug is extremely soft to stand on and holds up to regular wear well as my Bishon loves to run fast in circles throughout the house often digging her claws into this rug.... I would recommend this rug to anyone who is looking for a rug that will be inviting, add a touch of style and warm or lighten your room. It is just beautiful and sure to last for years. The rug seems to reflect surrounding colors. If you put a green color next to it, you will see a slight green undertone--minimal: brown brings out the taupe/tan colors: the red is deep but obvious that it is not burgundy.
