The blue border is more distinctive than what displayed on my monitor. It appears more ice/slate blue than it did on the monitor, but I was hoping for that. I'm not sure if it is really hand made by some family in India. The "hand-tied knots" are hidden by the rug's backing. There are a few places in the pattern that appear hand-made since they aren't perfect. For the price, I didn't care. It's thick, cushy and works great in our foyer. I'd buy more in the larger sizes if I had rooms for them. The one drawback is that it is so thick. I'm still getting used to stepping up and over the edges to avoid tripping!
