"Makes me happy every day"

I received a gift certificate and used it to get this rug. It is one of the best presents ever. I put it in the entry hall in my house - a traditional Japanese house! It gets a lot of traffic, including pets, and it has held up perfectly. It washes easily (in cold water) and looks as good as the day it arrived. The colors are bright but not gaudy. It goes very well with the naturals of the Japanese house and I get compliments from visitors all the time. I was a bit worried about the fact that it was wool, but now I think the wool was the best choice. I love this tug - it makes me happy every time I come and go.

The rug and its beautiful vibrant colours brought memories of warmer times, when on my frequent Mexico trips, back to cold, dark and wet Scotland - making our winters more bearable. Excellent craftsmanship and also very resilient for daily use - not shredding fibres etc.
