I chose this rug because of its beautiful, vibrant, skillfully coordinated colors as displayed online. While the colors of the actual rug are probably the same as those displayed online, here is the problem: the underlying vertically-running yarns of the rug (i.e., the warp), into which the horizontally-running colored yarns of the rug are interwoven (i.e., the weft), are white. And because the rug's yarns are very thin, the underlying white yarns are extremely visible behind its colorful yarns. (Online images do not show this.) This gives the rug a thread-bare appearance and feeling quality. Also, after just two weeks on the floor, I notice that one of the edges is starting to unravel. So, the rug earns strong marks for colors, but low marks for lushness and overall quality. Overall, I am disappointed. I would not have bought it had I been able to examine it in person first.
