What does this mean?

Hi Meg,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Is the black part integral to the design or is the colorful part of the rug laid on top of a larger dark piece? It almost looks like it was cut-out and sewn onto a dark backing.

Let me know what you think; it may affect the condition...

Thanks in advance,
Delia

I believe the the color part it integral with the black... I will add an image of the back of the rug if that helps.
