Very nice weaving with vibrant colors and a subtle complexity that that is evident the closer one looks. Excellent crafts-person-ship.

"Beautiful rust coloured will rug"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This rug is absolutely beautiful and I was surprised how soft the wool feels under your bare feet - amazing! The colour is pretty accurately shown in the pictures but the written description of the colours is misleading, as another reviewer noted. Luckily I was banking on it being the colour shown in the pictures -and not the description - the red is actually a rust color, the black is more like charcoal or navy and the green is a yellowy olive green - exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you Albert!!
