This is the second of these rugs I've purchased. They are great. The rug is made of real bamboo slats which are very strong, with a nice varnish finish. I have the newest rug on my office floor, where I run my office chair over it endlessly. It holds up very nicely, without tearing it up. Yes, it does scratch the finish a bit, but not so badly that it's that noticeable. It has a nice fabric binding on the edges that gives it a finished look. I have the first rug I purchased on a spare bedroom floor, and it still looks as nice as the day it arrived. I'll probably replace the one in my office, when the time comes, with the same rug, if it's still available. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes the tropical look, or is just looking for something a little different.
I love this rug. The weight of it surprised me once it was delivered. There is one draw back to the rug. I could see that if your carpet is plush, and a heavy person walks on the rug, there is a chance the bamboo slats could break. Other than that I find no flaw. The binding is excellent. The brown border is sewn well and it made of a durable nylon. Don't think about it, just buy this thing!

I bought a similar bamboo rug a few years ago for a comparable price at Overstock and the quality couldn't even be compared to the thing I bought this month. There were some green ink stains on it, and in general the rug is flimsy. I don't even know if this is a bamboo or something else
This rug was placed in high traffic area by my front door and another under my kitchen table. When I moved the rugs to vacuum the floor was completely dented by the plastic beading that is on the bottom. I had bought these rugs to protect my pine floors and now I will need to refinish the floor. Do not use without added padding on softer wood flooring!
I sent it back the next day. Usually have good luck with O.co, but not this time.
