"A bright bright star"

The artistic design and wonderful quality of weaving in this rug is worth the purchase. It is a beautiful rug except that one color is not quite as pictured. The orange is very bright. On the web site, the orange looks more subdued like a dark coral, which was the main color for which I bought it. I realize colors are not always as shown on computer monitors, but the other colors in this rug ARE as shown. It is only the orange which stands out as brighter. This is the only reason I gave it a 4 istead of a 5 star rating. I would have given it 4.5 but no way to do the 1/2 star ! I have placed it in a location other than what I had intended due to this color difference, but still do love the rug. It is a lovely quality rug. I would order again from this artist, but I would pick my colors more neutrally next time ! Thank you, Delfina Ruiz

"Color and tradition in every weave"

The color and styling are superb with traditional motifs evident throughout. As an atypical size, perfect for smaller areas. Neither thin or over bulky - ideal for a floor piece or could easily be used as tapestry. Highly recommend.
