I was leery in purchasing the rug as I like to see & feel these types of items. But it described it as being about 0.6 in. thick, so I thought I would chance it. I was not disappointed. It is nice & thick & plush & soft. the colors are fairly true to what I saw in the picture. I also purchased a 3x4 in same design. I have a lot of antiques so I wanted something that would look good, but not pay the price of hand-knotted rugs-it looks great.
