Ordered on "Black Monday" and it arrived the next day. Amazing! The colors are pretty true to the pic online, although not as much sheen as shown in the online pic ... the pic almost makes it look like it would be a silk blend rug. I would describe the ground color as a warm brown rather than rust ... certainly not reddish. Nice tight weave and plush underfoot. 1/2" to 3/4" thick. It's been down almost a month and there's almost no more shedding. This rug is a great value and great beginning to furnishing our foyer. 4 stars for color description being a little bit off, a small nick on the back of the binding ... but nothing that should affect wear, appearance or overall durability.
