I received my rug today and absolutely love it. The colors are very rich and it is a very high quality rug. The border around the rug is approximately 2-3 inches wide and is burgandy colored. It was wider that I had expected and burgandy is not my color but there are so many other rich, earthy colors in this rug that it will go with anything. I was glad to see a chocolate brown in this rug that does not show up very well on the website. I am very glad that I ordered this rug. It is hard to imagine that you can order something the size of this rug and have it shipped for 2.95. This rug was a great buy and I would highly recommend it.
