This is a beautiful rug!! I love the design of Oushaks and have been looking for a rug for an extremely long time. Having looked at so many 3-5 thousand dollar rugs, I knew this one was comparable. It is not hand made, however it is hand spun, meaning the wool that was used to make it was hand spun. It does not have a light side and a dark side like hand made rugs. This rug is a discontinued line from a great manufacturer and normally sells for $2,200. You can currently find this rug on other websites for double what Overstock has it listed at. The field color is brown and the large flowers are cream. Inside some of the flowers is a dusty rose color. On my monitor it looked rust. There is some rust or terracotta in the rug. I love it and for the price you cannot beat it!!
