I bought this mat as a Christmas present for my sisters who said they needed a fall one. I was impressed with the colors when I received it. They are really beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice. I think they will really like it. It did have a strong, rubbery smell when I opened the box, but that seems to have gone away now.
It arrived in a package that was much larger than necessary. I wonder how much it cost compared to one in a box much smaller. Otherwise, I am pleased with my purchase.
