As other reviewers noted, this is a lovely cream colored wool rug with raised silk "burst" detailing in shades of gold, chocolate brown, and cream. It's an incredible value for the money. It's the perfect neutral colored rug with just enough drama to make it interesting. Since I placed it in my little used guest bedroom, I haven't encountered the pilling that other reviewers noted, but that generally come with the territory of a wool rug. The silk material of the burst really make the rug gleam in sunshine or under light, and actually brings a shot of brightness into the room. Highly recommend.
