love, love, love this area rug. It is exactly as pictured on the web, even nicer! I shopped locally at***, ****, *** etc....and could not find a decent oriental in this size. I recently remodeled my bathroom with an Asian theme and this works perfectly! It is thick, so I did have to have the bathroom door cut down about 1/2 inch. I did get quite a bit of red wool up on the first vacuuming, but it stays in the rug, it doesn't shed to the surrounding tile floor so no big deal. This rug could have sold for more in my opinion!!
