"Just received my 6 X 9 rug. I also purchased a 10 X 14 and a long runner from the same manufacturer. I had no problem with the first two, but this one has a very strong chemical odor. I've read that sometimes it never goes away. Do you have any thoughts on this? I really want to keep the rug but the smell is horrendous."

I purchased the 21 ft runner that is exactly like this 6 X 9. It has a vivid pattern and a dark red/rust center. The matching 6 X 9 is a much light rust color and the pattern it more blurred. It also has a strong chemical smell that the other one didn't. I'm wondering if the runner was vegetable dye and the area rug was chemically dyed. Either way, for being identical rugs they sure look different. I also, purchased a 10 X 14 Mahal from the same company that didn't have that smell and is much more vivid as well. If the smell dissipates then I will keep the rug. However, combine the smell with the blurry pattern and different color, it might just not be worth it.Read More
This rug is gorgeous! The colors are warm, rich and very well defined. I am always very skeptical buying online because colors can be different than computer monitors show them. This rug is prettier than I expected it to be and it is beautiful online. I would recommend this rug and I will be less hesitant in the future to purchase online.Read More
