I've been looking both on-line and at local rug dealers for this type of rug for some time, so I've examined many, many examples. For the price, this rug is OK. The quality of the wool is inferior to other, more expensive rugs of the same size and design I've seen. If you're looking for top quality, you'll want to go to a dealer, and pay the higher price. If good quality is OK for you, and you're price conscious, this rug will serve you well.
