"how thick is this rug and does it need a pad"
Beautiful rug. Nice and thick. The color particularly the blue is different than as depicted onsite. The blue is closer to a steel blue than a light blue or even wedgewood blue. My dog just got sick on the rug so I'm about to find out about durability. So far so good....
ITEM#: 12084996Product Features:
- Rug design comes from the Iranian city of Mahal
- Area rug features an asymmetrical Persian knot design
- Rug features rich tones of blue, ivory, gold, beige, black and red
From the mid 19th-century onward, Mahal rugs were exclusively made for the European market. They often favored the bold floral designs with spacious patternes. All rugs from this period were exclusively made with pure and natural dyes. Dark red, blue, soft green, gold, and ivory are the typical colors. Besides using wide and bold borders, Mahal rugs had designs based on small repeating floral patterns as well as all-over large scale lattice vine patterns.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I gave this rug a poor rating because it was NOT the rug as pictured OR described: This rug is NOT LIGHT blue, it is a medium muddy blue/grey , and the IVORY, is NOT IVORY, but a muddy BEIGE color!.... I was sooo upset. & disappointed! This was the first time I have been disappointed by rugs purchased here, but even on back of the rug, the glued on tag says MEDIUM blue.!Read More
This rug is beautiful and looks even better than the photo. It is well made and looks great in my bedroom. A great buy for the money.Read More
I was searching for a rug combining blue and brown in a traditional pattern and this really fills the bill. Color is not as ivory as the photo indicates, but more of a golden brown but that works very well in my space. It is actually in my kitchen between the sink and a prep island.. and the thickness and softness under my feet is wonderful. And since it is wool and cotton it will clean/wash very easily. I'm really happy with it and would highly recommend it. And I have to mention that it arrived very quickly....Overstock is the best!!!Read More
This run looks nice in our hallway, but it is smaller than advertised so it did not work where I originally planned to put it. Also, the colors are more muted and the pattern is a little muddy than the photos. Still, a nice rug.Read More
The workmanship is great and the rug is good quality. My only complaint is that the color is not the same as online. It is not light blue, but more green/blue and the accents are much yellower than I had expected. Disappointed but am keeping it anyhow.Read More
