These Nourison rugs are a delight! We bought three: a Nourison 2000 Hand-tufted Tabriz Black Rug (10 x 10) Octagon, a Nourison 2000 Hand-tufted Tabriz Black Rug (2'6 x 12), and a Nourison 2000 Hand-tufted Tabriz Black Rug (2'3 x 8). The octagon is in the middle of our octagon shaped living room and the other two are hall runners leading into the living room. The arrangement is beautiful. The rugs are high quality, dense, thick, with vibrant colors.
This rug is a lovely addition to my master bathroom. The 4' Round Hand-Tufted Brantford Geometric Indoor Rug is made in India from 100% wool. The pile is a hefty .625 inches, so measure for door clearance before purchasing, and take into consideration that ALL wool rugs shed. One customer review did mention "lines" in the weave. The rug I purchased also has a few "lines"in the silk (wool). I find this an acceptable factor and not a flaw. Closer inspection of the "lines" reveal color variation in the wool used in each section of the geometric pattern and they do not compromise the section edges which are crisp. The best way I can describe these "lines" is that they give the impression that the rug has been freshly vacuumed. The rug's quality is evident in that this rug lays flat, without any rolling or curling along the edges. This rug is a good buy, and as a purchaser of it I'm very satisfied. But I would like to point out that this rug is NOT Hand-Made; it is HAND-TUFTED, and there is a BIG difference between the two. The 4' Round Hand-Tufted Brantford Geometric Indoor Rug is mechanically made. In fact, the only human interaction in the process of creating this rug (or any Hand-Tufted rug) is that of the person who uses a "mechanical gun/wand" to "shoot" wool pieces through a sketched pattern on the rug's canvas backing. A caveat in determining if a rug is Hand-Tufted or Hand-Made is a Hand-Tufted rug WILL have a backing of rubber, felt or otherwise, sewn or glued onto its bottom. If glue has been used on the backing it may create an environmental hazard and emit an odor, so choose wisely. A Hand-Made rug WILL NOT have a backing, does have a considerably higher price-point, and is a better choice environmentally. Furthermore, a Hand-Made rug's pattern and color carries through to the bottom. Hand-Made rugs can be flipped and used, though the color will not be as vibrant. Purchase the 4' Round Hand-Tufted Brantford Geometric Indoor Rug product because it suits your taste in decor and not because you are under the impression it will carry any value down the road. Thank you for reading my review. ;)
The design is absolutely beautiful, and it is plenty sturdy, but I should have paid better attention to the word "hand-hooked" because my cats turned it into a tufted rug within about a week. They pull at my other rugs but it didn't show as much as on this one. Still, I am quite happy with it.
I ordered the 4' x4' in rust. Beautiful, exactly as described. Thick and soft, sheds somewhat, but it is a hand tufted wool rug, this is expected. Would not hesitate to order if your looking for a rust colored rug!
