I was very nervous buying a rug off the Internet, but it worked out great! I am glad I read all the other reviews first, it prepared me better than buying a rug with no comments. I love the quality of the rug, it sheds a little, but less than I was expecting. The color is true to the screen, but mine has a little more green (as in moss-green or sage) than the photo....but since they are all hand-made I assumed they would all be a little different. I have dark wood furniture and it looks really good with it. My dogs love it as well, they lay on it instead of the sofa now!!! Now all I have to do is find a similar one for my dining-area!!
