This is a thick, soft wool rug. It has hardly shed at all and is heavy (I bought a pad but don't think I needed it). The pattern is vibrant and clear. The background color is brick, not rust, with a slightly pink tone in direct sunlight. In indirect light the background looks brick red. Very pretty rug and an incredible value for the money - at least half the cost of any wool rug of this size that I could find in a store. Great job overstock!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was off - it is a brick red with a slightly pink tone.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality - thick and soft rug. Laid completely flat almost immediately. I bought a pad but think I could have gone without it because of the weight of the rug. Beautiful pattern - it really brightens up the room.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate.
