Very good color and quality shag rug. The only issues we have is the threads are very long and little toys (that kids have in their rooms) keep getting lost (and stepped on) on the rug. Can't be vacuumed, has to be shaken out which is hard when you have a bunk bed on top of it and it's a 9 x 12 rug. All and all, it looks nice and fits perfectly in the tween daughter's room, just be aware of the issues above.
First of all if you love turquoise / teal as much as I do, you will go nuts over this rug. Wasn't exactly sure what to expect, because the only wool rug I currently have is an authentic oriental rug and a very traditional style. I love the design on this very much and I had a vision of buying one of the other turquoise dip dyed rugs for under my king size bed in the 9 x 12 size and this one to put in the sitting area/dressing area of my master bedroom. I'm so glad I took a chance on this combination (pictures below) because not only are these rugs of high-quality they are a true true teal which is so hard to find. I'm also a painter and an artist so I love the fact that these are not perfect and have a very painterly feel to them it's a very unique combination in a rug that will give you that extra Something. Please keep in mind that the background also isn't white, it's a very off-white almost cream kind of color. I personally would have preferred a true white background but after living with this rug for a short while I have come to appreciate the natural off-white tone as my linen curtains have seem to kind of say to that color as well so unintentionally they end up going very well together . There are a few very minimal dark spots that other reviewer's had commented on but that just goes with the natural painting/dying process. Anyone can see that, and it's not a defect so reviewers that say this as a problem I don't think understand the handmade nature of something that is painted. But it is good to point out as there are maybe two specs like that on my whole 8 x 10 rug. Not something you notice right away at all and again gives it that handmade authentic feeling. Love this rug so much I ended up buying a second one in a different pattern to complete the master bedroom and I'm so happy I did!
I just received this rug a few days ago. I got the 9' X 12' and it shipped in a roll. It's a very heavy, good quality rug. I love the pattern. I unrolled it and it had no trouble laying down quickly. The only surprise is the color. On my computer screen it has an overall red and ivory look. The description even says it's ivory but believe me, there is absolutely no ivory. The back ground is somewhere between sage and taupe. This makes the rug a more muted pattern than is shown. This gives is a much more neutral impact in the room than I thought it would. I put it in my bedroom under a bed with a red and tan duvet. It all goes together very well. I am very happy with the quality of the rug and would recommend it to someone else.
