Unfortunately at one point something happened to the rug and it arrived wet on one side and damp on the other side resulting in a mold smell. I urgently needed the rug for a show and did not have the time to return it, so I had to sun dry and mold treat it as good as I could. Based on the mold smell, I think the wet and dampness has happened before the rug was shipped. There should be a better quality control on the shipped out products.

Love the warm, varied, natural tones and the chunky weave of this rug. Great price for the size and quality. A little bit of unraveling along the edge so far after two days with our two dogs and two cats. I think describing the rug as "soft" is misleading. The texture is rough, but it feels good underfoot.

I really like this rug. We've had it for a few months now and it looks just as it did when we bought it. It's not in a super high traffic area, but I do think it will hold up well. I remember it having a slight dirt smell when we received it, but it really wasn't a big deal. (It is made from natural fibers...it's nothing like a strong chemical smell that a lot of items these days have.) It went away very soon after we received it. I tried vacuuming it once and one of the threads came lose, but I easily tucked it back in and it wasn't a big deal. (I just won't be vacuuming it again, just vacuum underneath and shake it outside as necessary). It's a great price, especially compared to some of the local furniture stores. We use it in our relaxed beach cottage living room and it's a great fit. We're considering purchasing another one for our dining room. It has nice mix of natural colors. It's comfortable on foot. Definitely not squishy, but doesn't hurt either. And my young kids don't complain of a scratchy or pokey rug.

We've had this rug for just a few months now and it's currently in our dining room which barely ever gets used, but there are already several places where loops are coming undone! I was expecting more with all of the glowing reviews, but I definitely was disappointed.
I read the great reviews prior to purchasing this rug and when mine arrived (quickly I might add) I was even more impressed with the quality than I thought I would be. Overstock rarely disappoints..another great purchase.

Not this rug. There are bargains but this is not one of them. Two complaints are: the dust/dandruff out of this rug is endless. We've vacuumed and took it outside for a beating with a broomstick but it did not help. At all. In addition the Natural fiber is not woven tightly so there is a lot of loose ends. Enough said, please ignore this product at all costs!
We had wanted an area rug for our new sunroom and had not decided on any particular one. When I saw this jute rug on Overstock.com I thought that I had found just what we wanted and need. I was right! It is ust the right size and immediately laid flat on the floor with not adjustments necessary. My husband and I both like it very much and know that it will fulfill our needs for years to come.

I love the color and feel of this rug, but it's already coming frayed and unraveled in spots and underneath is an incredible amount of dust/grime from the rug. I don't have a rug pad under it; not sure if that would help with the grime. It's almost like it's disentigrating. It's definitely not the quality that you'd get from, say, West Elm, but it's the look for a lot less.
This is a great rug for a fraction of the cost of other natural fiber rugs. It looks great in my family room and definitely hold up to traffic. There have definitely been a few stray fibers that have come up but I expected this with a natural fiber rug. I also expected that I would need to clean under it often since this type of rug does not have a backing that holds a ton of dirt like other rugs. Like I said early great rug for a fraction of the cost. The initial dirty smell people are complaining about when you first open it seems to just be a natural fiber smell and it goes away really fast since i think the smell just comes from being wrapped up in plastic (another small jute rug I have smelled the same until it aired out) .
Loved it right when it came out of the package! There's a slight earthy smell to it, colors are great! Found something similar at World Market for $*** and saved a bundle by purchasing this one! The rug's actual dimensions are 5' x 7' 8" (so, not quite 5' x 8' as advertised)
The rug is nice looking however it came dirty and smelled musty and moldy. I called Overstock excellent customer service who very quickly reshipped a new rug to my but to my disappointment it came smelling like and old moldy cellar. It makes me believe that the storage of the rugs in insufficient or that is the way they come. I will return :(
I have seen this style of rug in many stores and online for ***- my savvy shopper style refused to pay that though so I was ecstatic when I found this online. I was even more ecstatic when it arrived at my house because it was much better quality than I was expecting. The colors are perfect when trying to incorporate that "natural" look into a farm house style. I have had many people ask where I got my rug from and are shocked when I tell them how little I paid for it. I was nervous reading some of the other reviews about smell and unraveling issues- but if you are truly looking for a natural fiber rug, the smell is the give away that you have the real deal. As far as unraveling goes, I have yet to notice any but this rug is not in a high traffic area of my master bedroom, on hardwood floors, so that probably helps. I would not recommend this where dogs or children would be playing a lot because I could see how unraveling issues would occur then.
I originally purchased this rug to hang on a wall behind a bed for decorative purposes and to give the room some texture. When I received it I realized it was way too heavy for a wall. The picture doesn't do this rug justice. It doesn't show the details of this beautiful woven rug. Instead, I decided to use it in our living room on top of our carpet. It really looks great and I'm glad I purchased it.
