This is a vintage 100% wool rug hand woven in India with the brand name CHINDIA. When Iranian rugs became difficult to import in the 1970s, these Indian rugs became popular. It is very thick and well made and shows absolutely no signs of wear. The background color is ivory and the predominant color in the floral design is gold. One spot that was under the bed is a tad darker but, overall, the color is consistent. The fringe is on the worn side but could be trimmed or replaced. It was shampooed by Hoffman about one year ago although I did notice a couple new spots as it was being rolled up. These wool rugs are quite easy to spot clean. We are moving to a retirement community and this rug is way too big. If you want it (but you don't have to take it), I also have a large green wool rug (9' x 12') which is sun faded but in otherwise good shape which I will include for FREE. This one is lined so I couldn't find a label. It was also shampooed recently. You would need a pickup truck to pick up these rugs - that's how big and thick they are. Also, I will accept Cash Only for this sale.
