High quality rug but watch out for fakes from 3rd party sellers.
Reviewed in the United States on December 29, 2016
This is a great rug: Thick and full. Very well made. Deep navy blue.
But my review today is mainly to give you a word of caution: Beware of fakes being sold right here on Amazon.
I ordered two of these rugs: One from Amazon, and since I liked it so much, I ordered one later from one of their third party sellers, "GlenValley Inc," (because at the time Amazon itself was out of stock.)
The Amazon one was a real Safavieh rug, high quality, with thick jute backing and the Safavieh label on the back saying it was made in Turkey.
The one from GlenValley was pretty much the quality of a cheap bath rug. Their rug was not nearly as dense as the real Safavieh one, the yarns were thinner, and the backing was rubber. It was a brighter blue. There was no label on the rug back, but there was a label on the package wrapping that said "Made in China." No manufacturer was specified. (See attached picture of fake rug rubber backing.)
I just wanted to let everyone know the difference between the real and fake rugs. I'll be reordering a real Safavieh rug from Amazon itself to replace the fake one.
