"How thick is the pile?"
This rug is a work of art! Colorful, well made, lovely pattern and perfect for brightening up my kitchen! I would recommend this to anyone looking to add some color and "pizzazz" to their decor! The picture is nice, but the rug is really more beautiful than shown on line.And it even tells who the artist/weaver is... Great buy! Thanks Overstock!...

My name is Mario Chavez. I come from a family of weavers. We thread and dye the wool with natural colorants such as cochineal, walnut tree bark and local flowers. The weaving can take anywhere between one day and a whole month. To finish, we roll up the loose threads and tie them into knots. Finally, we check the rug to make sure it is of good quality and has no imperfections.
- Primary Color: Red
- Pattern: Geometric
