NY Good Questions: Any Experience with Crewel Rugs?

Dear AT,

I love this crewel rug (and several others) from Anthropologie, but I don't know much about crewel work (and the rug seems pretty thin).

Does anyone have any experience with this type of rug?

Will it hold up to use or is it meant to be in a room that no one ever enters?

If it will hold up, any suggestions for a rug pad to give it some good cushioning?

Thanks! RJ
