Essex Blue is a traditional Old World style updated with modern design elements. A classic, Oriental, Persian Sarouk design is updated with a contemporary palette of dark blue, beige, and ivory. The pattern is heavily distressed to give the faded quality of a timeless antique. A plush 0.4" pile of heat set polypropylene gives an exceptional feel and precise pattern definition. The yarn is soft, stain resistant, and doesn't shed or fade over time. A 100% jute backing is safe for wood floors and all four sides of the rug are serged for improved durability.
