This rug is made of luxuriously deep shag pile that feels and looks wonderful. It is the ultimate luxury shaggy rug. It is made from top grade New Zealand wool and has a strong cotton back with reinforced edges. It will last for many years and with years of use the wool will develop a lustre. The colour is a mix of shades of red. Most of the pile is just over 10cm deep ! One other thing to note is that the knots are in a checkerboard pattern rather than in rows like you find on lower quality rugs – which improves the evenness of the pile.
The picture is accurate for the colour. It is a strong red – slightly light rather than dark .. and a nod to pink rather than brown.
