The picture does not do this rug justice! The colors are so crisp: sage green, ecru, reddish-brown. There are even subtle purples that match my existing decor. The texture is soft and the thickness gives it a nice feel under your feet. My father-in-law, who grew up in Europe, asked if the rug was from France. He was surprised that it was made in India. The one thing that I do not like about it is, that after 3 months, it is still shedding 3/8" threads that feel like jute, which is used in the backing. I do yoga in the room, not on the rug, but off to the side of it, and afterwards, I'm covered with these fibers. Not a big problem and perhaps after a few more vacuumings it will subside.
