I was scared about ordering on line, but the rug arrived in perfect condition within a week. The colors are identical to the photo, primarily browns and muted. It looks beautiful under my dining room table. Shedding has been very minimal. I will definitely buy another from this manufacturer. The only small concern I had it that although it is titled Oushak rug, it is in fact a reproduction made in China, not Turkey as are real Oushaks(although I expected that based on the price).
