"This is hand-knotted so I assume there is no backing, correct? Also what is the weight should I want to ship it back or what would the charge be? What are the colors of the boarder, rust or red? What is the color of the center background, beige or ivory (yellowish)? Is there any silk in it?"

Story Behind the Art:
This rug's design originated in the village of Sarouk. The rugs are made on portable wooden looms typically with wool pulled from the tribe's sheep each year. This particular rug was made in the Bhadohi region of India by Mr. Mahmood and his family. They do the entire process of shearing, washing, dyeing and weaving of the rugs within their own compound by all of the family members. The rug is 100-percent wool with vegetable dyes.
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.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.
