"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.

"Bright and Cheery! Perfect!"

Exactly what I was looking for...a bright cheery rug to use beneath the barstools at my new kitchen island. The colors are perfect, exactly as pictured, and the craftsmanship is very nice. The wool is thick so I expect this rug will wear well. Couldnt be happier!
