I wasn't sure what to expect from such an inexpensive rug. What a surprise! The rug is casual and looks perfect with the retro style wool area rug we already had. We bought a no slip pad for it, but haven't found the need to use it. The leather part of the rug really grips our bamboo flooring, and we haven't had to adjust it at all. I have some concerns about threads and knotting coming loose over time, but likely a bit of black thread would fix it. I wouldn't recommend using a heavy duty vacuum on it...probably a wand attachment would be safer. I found the knots/weaving to be a tad uncomfortable on bare feet, but my husband thought they felt good. Also, some in our household have sensitivity to odors, and this rug was happily odor free! All in all, this is an excellent rug at an even better price!
