We bought this rug for our foyer, and it has been in place for over a month. It gets a lot of foot traffic. In addition, we have five cats, all of whom like to sharpen their claws on it. It looks as good as the day we received it: no pulls, no frays. It is easy to vacuum, even. The color is not quite as bright as on the monitor, but nicer- looks antique. It fits right in with the various tribal and Turkish rugs in the house, but is completely reversible. Grab it quick!
I think that, for a collector of tribal rugs, this might be an interesting addition. But if you want an attractive rug that you actually want to look at, forget it. The problem is not the flat weave; that's a traditional style and even if it feels tough for bare feet it fits with a rustic theme. The problem is the color. Imagine if you took the rug in the photo and dipped it in mud. That's what you'll get. Designers might call it 'subdued.' I found that the uniform muddy darkness conceals the design. I have come to learn that Overstock's photographers jazz up the colors with PhotoShop. Please you guys, don't' try the defense "It's your monitor". You will spare yourselves a lot of returns by providing honest pictures.

This rug is stunning. Even more striking in person. It is on the thin side and should be used with a rug pad. It will slide around on hardwood floors but I would buy it again in a heart beat. My cat loves it too. Even though she likes to exercise her claws on it, there are no pulled threads. The colors are lovely and the blue appears more gray which I love. Buy This Rug!!
This rug is a five star at a two star price. The craftsmanship and the natural colors are superb. My living room is complete with this rug. The Tribal rug is a flat weave so i just placed it over my area rug of the same proportion. Nice things make me happy, my living room is a happy place.
This rug was exactly as described! Customer service was helpful. Shipped quick and wrapped so rug was protected, no damage from shipping. Using over carpet (with rug pad) and it stays in place. It is a jute rug, so it is thin but with pad it lays well.
I received this rug within 24 hours of ordering--talk about customer service! The rug exceeds my expectations. Has a beautiful hand-crafted look about it. The colors are rich and muted, giving it an authentic look. I bought it for my dining room and it is perfect. Adapts to traditional and modern styles. The appearance and quality far exceed the price.
I should have listened to the previous reviewers who warned about the color. You will NOT see the beautiful colors in person that you see in the rug on-line. It's an okay rug, especially if you are looking more for muted overlays of browns, beiges and grays. I kept it because it's a nuisance to send back. Material is not cozy-soft - it's jute! But the pattern is very nice.
I replaced my wool oriental with the tribal jute/wool rug and it has made my living room pop with a more contemporary look. Being use to heavy wool rugs this rug is lighter and you need to order the rug pad with it. The colors are wonderfully soft so even in my traditional house it has the warm "always there" look to it wjile adding a modern note. For the price, it far exceeded my expectations. My mother a southern sticker for tradition came for a visit and even she thought it was a wonderful modern complement to update a traditional room.
My husband and I originally loved this rug. I had planned to put it in a bedroom, but it went so well downstairs because of its muted colors that I also ordered a 9x12 rug. Although the two differently-sized rugs look almost identical in their photos and descriptions, the off-white color of the 8x10 looks gray in bright sunlight, and the off-white color of the 9x12 looks yellowish and the off-white fiber's texture is coarser. I still kept both rugs, but am less happy with them than I was when I just had the 8x10. I just received two 2'6 x 8' runners and will have to return those because their colors are as bright as those in the photos for all three, and they make colors of the two larger rugs look washed out.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Completely except for the colors represented in the photo. They were much more muted, which was fine with me.
I love the rug's looks so much I purchased a secound one for the dinning room and it looks great under my mission style table. Only flaw is it's inability to lay as flat as I'd like along the edges. you may have to steam or iron it if you want it perfectly flat.
The rug was a steal! It was delivered very quickly. I also bought a mat for cushioning and to stop it from from sliding which I feel is needed for this rug. Love the colors, it looks almost antique, not faded but not "new" looking. Love it, love it, love it!
It's muted colors and design are a perfect addition to my dining room! I definitely recommend using a pad of some sort underneath. My only wish is that the rug had been sent rolled the rug instead of folded....after a week on the floor it's still has creases....hoping they disappear quickly.
I purchased the rug for our cabin living room. The room is rustic with dark wood walls and floors and a field stone fireplace. I was looking for a rug that looked old/ antique. I noted other reviewers who stated that the rug colors were muted and old looking. I was happy that the colors in person are not as bright as they show on the web site . The rug is gorgeous and I am very happy with it. I am considering ordering another one for the adjoining hallway.
Love it Colors as listed great rug for the price. Looks so good.

This is a great rug if you are looking for a handwoven, vintage/earthy look. The rug I received was 8'2" x 9'9" without the fringe. The predominant color is a multi-tone brick red, then there is a dark grey and light blue grey, some off white and touches of mustard. The colors in person are much cooler than what I see onscreen. It's very thin and more like a textile but works well as a rug over the "supreme felted dual surface" pad I ordered. We have it in our dining room which has a rustic slate floor and it seems to be a great choice. It's not uncomfortable to my tough, adult feet but a crawling baby would likely not appreciate it.
