I love this rug. It is well made. The fibers that make the color burst were not what I expected though. I thought they would be made of a raised fiber material that was similar to the background of the rug. That is not the case. However, the different textures make the rug interesting. I haven't put the rug down yet because I haven't decided whether to keep it for myself or give it to my daughter, who has very contemporary taste. The area where I wanted to place it gets a lot of traffic and I don't know how well it will hold up for that area over time.
