"Why did you choose this product?"
If I had read the description more carefully, I would not have been surprised at the size. For our home, it is too narrow to serve as a rug, so we have hung it on the wall. The color blends well with other rugs we have purchased....

Story Behind the Art:
Mexico's Gregorio Ruiz recalls, 'My grandmother would take me buy wool. She'd wash it, card it, spin it and dye the yarn. This job is always done by women. By the age of 12, I could reach the pedals of the handloom. Ever since, I've woven rugs and now my sons have also learned our craft.'
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.
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 allow 10 business days for the product to leave our warehouse and to receive tracking information. You should expect to receive this item within 15 business days of the order date.
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.

I gave this a good rating because the fabric was handcrafted, natural and not synthetic. The color was good but not as vibrant as the pix. However, although the lengthand width were accurate the thickness was way off. It was perhaps 3/8" thick whereas the copy said it was 2" thick. Huge difference!Read More
I've given this one star because it is so small that it really doesn't work as a runner - at least not in a "normal" floor space. But I only have myself to blame, so I ad libbed and used it on a sofa table. Obviously, I paid too much money for a runner for a sofa table! None of this is Overstock's fault. Mea culpa!!! I really imagined that this would be a lot bigger. I should have known better. The dimensions are prominently displayed.Read More
