Each rug is handmade for their customers in an ages old technique that has been passed on to the creative artisans of today. Homefires employs the use of various fibers and techniques to create just the right look for their many beautiful designs. Although most of their rugs are made from wool yarn, customers will also find some rugs made in cotton yarn and others in acrylic yarn. The choice of fiber is dictated by Homefires' desire to achieve a particular color tone, clarity, or intensity. Cotton allows Homefires to achieve a very clean soft tone. Wool provides a rich warm tone, and acrylic fibers can be dyed to create the most vivid of colors. The different techniques used include hooked, tufted, and a combination of hooking and tufting called Hi/Lo. Hi/Lo rugs are those that are a combination of tufting and hooking where the tufted part of the fibers are left measurably longer than the hooked part. The Cut/Loop technique is also a combination of hooking and tufting, but in this technique the tufted part of the rug is cut much closer to the height of the hooked area. In all cases, the design of the rug influences the technique that Homefires chooses.
Buyer beware...it's a grab bag!

Because other reviewers mentioned they had received a rug with a gray background, I asked customer service whether the background was in fact gray or tan (as shown). Their response: "I am happy to look into this for you. The Homefires Orange Painted Rain Forest Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug is a handmade product and the actual colors may vary as stated on the product page. This is due to dye lots and availability of colors." My response: Seriously? "The actual colors may vary".....given that people tend to purchase floor coverings to match decor, the main (background) color of an area rug is pretty important in making that decision! There's a big difference between a tan vs. gray rug and I would rather not be surprised by clicking "here" to place my order. If the current picture of the rug on the site is not an accurate depiction of the rug color, then it should be replaced with one that it is. Unacceptable! Pros: The rug is very pretty as depicted on site Cons: Who knows what color this rug really is....apparently the actual colors may vary!

The photo shows this carpet with colors so vibrant but the one I received is dull and drab. The background color is gray, not tan. I'll be keeping it as I had to tear the packaging to pull it out but I can't recommend this carpet to anyone. I wish I had gone with the one reviewer who also gave this rug one star.
Color is not as shown.

The pattern of the rug is as shown, but I am disappointed that while the picture of the rug shows a tan background, it is actually gray. I would not have purchased the rug if I had known the true color of the background color.

Beautiful colors on this rug! I have it in my foyer where it gets medium to heavy foot traffic and it is holding-up great! My last rug was replaced after four months of use and this rug is still going strong after eight months!

i bought this for a Florida vacation home and it's just right, easy to take care of, and the colors are bright and cheerful. I did add a nonslip mat underneath to prevent it from slipping on the tile, which works well.
