**This rug can be used on the front side OR the back side. Both options are shown here. The backside is more vibrant in color. The front side is more worn and muted. Both are gorgeous, it just depends on your taste. You will see there is a small stain on one end. It is visible on the front side, but barely there on the backside. The first 11 photos are the FRONTSIDE, the photos following are the BACKSIDE.
Because of the nature of these antique handmade rugs, irregularities are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
