The rug was not at all what I expected. The starburt patterns were FAR more raised and bunched up than indicated. They are almost a cloth-knotted shag, on top of the wool rug. I suppose if you didn't have to walk on the rug it might be okay, but it wasn't comfortable and I wasn't a huge fan of the look. I think the quality was good, just not the style/functionality I was looking for.
