I love this rug! It is top notch quality wool. Not that synthetic carpet material. Very plush and thick to touch. The colors are subtle and the pattern is 3 dimentional. I placed it in our bedroom and it looks fantastic. I want to buy another rug from this same manufacturer but in another pattern for another room. I would definately purchase this rug again or refer to a friend. I always buy my rugs from Overstock and have never been dissappointed.
