This rug is very pretty and true to the style of the image, but it is not white, as described. It is closer to ivory. In my all-white bedroom I was excited for the rug to give a little punch of texture, but it turns out against the white bedding and other elements it actually looks even more off-white. I am keeping it anyway, because it is still a very pretty and unique rug. So far, it has held up against minor foot traffic, but I can tell the weave catches fuzz and dirt pretty visibly.
