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.
The color combinations on the rug are great. However, did not realize what hand-tufted meant until I got this rug. It sheds like crazy and continues to shed even after months of vacuuming. I guess I learned not to buy hand-tufted rugs again. The deep color contrasts and combinations on the rug certainly adds depth to the room. But I cannot get over the shedding part.
As other reviewers noted, the colors are quite different than shown. I happen to enjoy the actual colors more than the online images, and I'm delighted with these rugs overall (also purchased a large rectangular rug with the same design - Heritage Medallion). They are especially wonderful underfoot - thick, plush, dense weave. As a couple of other reviewers noted, I found a very few pieces of dried glue deep in the rug; they are unattached to the rug and easily pulled out - not a big deal from my perspective. The colors are more blue/green/gray than the images indicate, with deep gold and brick red highlights (to my eye, anyway). The colors are subtle and understated rather than vibrant and bright. There was no fragrance / off-gassing with either of these wool rugs - a big relief. They shed a fair amount the first week or so of use; not at all surprising with a hand-tufted wool rug, and not a problem for me.
