When I saw hand tufted rug in the add I was excited. I assumed along the lines of a high-end loomed rug, Persian, Karastan etc... While it be hand made, one can only surmise that is because someone had to put the wall-to-wall carpet pieces together. I was very disappointed to see what truly appeared to be wall-to-wall carpet put together; not at all what I was expecting in finish, look or feel. Returned straight away to continue my search for a nice, high quality rug.
