in the picture the purple color was bright and vivid - in reality - the purple cloth weft strips were dark and "muddy" and thinner than the jute weft strips were wider and slightly thicker in height so on the floor the tan jute overwhelmed the purple so you could barely see it and on the dark wood floor the purple just blended in w/the floor so it looked more brown. Also, the knots in the jute were bulky and made walking on it very uncomfortable and potentially dangerous as some were large enough to possibly cause a twisted ankle. All in all, this was not as advertised and i sent it back. I will not be ordering something like this again. and---when I shipped it back - they charged me $XX,XX for the return shipping - which I understand and expected...however - they also charged me the "discount" I had received on the order - so -- instead of getting back the full price paid - $XXX.XX...I only received $XXX.XX back. Lesson learned!
