It is nice heavy rug. Color was quite important to me. When I opened the package, I was very glad see that the background color is a good, deep Red and not a Rust color that is commonly used in these type of rugs. The rug uses large yarns so the pattern is not as sharp or crisp as others I have bought. But overall, it was a very good value. I am strongly considering ordering a 2nd identical rug for a back-up.
