As others have said, it's a thick rug and attractive. I have it inside in the foyer against the front door where it is a good rug to catch dirt and wetness from people's shoes. You should know though, if you are expecting it to be like one of those really expensive handmade Oriental rugs--then this is not the rug for you. I'm not sure I'd like this rug if I'd ordered a huge one for my living room, or under my dining room table. But it's great for in front of a door, in a bathroom or in a kitchen.
