The rug arrived well-packaged. It matches the description exactly in size and depicted colors. Because it is a wool rug, it will be subject to some fraying around the edges over time; I can tell this already because most of the loose fibers are at the edges. To avoid that, buy a more expensive rug. As it is, though, it is fine for my purposes, and it is a good value compared to wool rugs I've purchased elsewhere. Use a pad under it for added life.
