This rug looked nothing like the photo and was loosely and sloppily made. Big, loopy weave; nothing like you would think a jute rug would look. Should have known by the price this was a dud. Would not recommend it and would have returned it but too much trouble with heavy rugs.

I really like the look and feel of this rug. The price was very reasonable however, there is an overwhelming chemical odor that I cannot get out of this rug. I wish I had read some of the reviews more carefully before I purchased because I see now that this was mentioned. I tried everything to get rid of the smell: airing it out, lysol, febreeze, etc to no avail. The chemical smell is so overwhelming it gave me a raging headache within less than an hour of breathing the fumes. I ended up tossing the rug and purchasing something else.
Ordered this rug on a Thursday afternoon and had it Saturday morning - FABULOUS SERVICE!!! and the rug is so nice - looks like a $200+ jute rug instead of Overstock's bargain price. I highly recommend this purchase. AND, an extra bonus, this rug could actually be reversible because the "wrong" side is beautiful too. YAY overstock.com....
I was Very Pleasantly surprised. The rug is actually a bit more formal looking than most seagrass or coire rugs of its kind.. It has beautiful workmanship that seems to be holding up well even with two curious cats in the home. I would say "bite the bullet" and buy it if it appeals to you but beware you cannot cancel your order after it's placed.
The rug is being used for my rabbits pen. Needed something that would not make him sick in case he chews it. So far so good. It moves around often because he hops and does bunny twist kicks. But it looks nice and he is litter box trained so I don't have to worry about potty accidents. I use the reverse side just in case he does mess it up I will still have the other side.
I don't know what rugs the negative reviewers received, but my rug looked just like the one in the pic. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I had issues with the shipping, the sent it back to overstock for some reason so I had to wait an additional week to receive which was frustrating. But ad far as the rug goes it's great. I have a cow hide over it and it was just the look I was going for with an excellent price. There were no strange smells as others had mentioned. Compared to the other natural fiber rugs that are 3 times as much, I am very happy with my purchase.
It's actually quite pretty for a n inexpensive little jute rug. Like many people, I like the back side better (more of the darker color and a simpler pattern than the front). The only weird thing was that the dark and light colors gave out and were replaced by a bright green for a few stitches (probably at the end of a roll of the twine lie material that was being woven). This might have been a deal killer in another application, but for casual use, it didn't matter.
This rug has two different looks when you flip the sofa which is a nice option but it would be better for an outdoor covered porch than inside. It is rough to the feet and difficult to vacuum. I still like it but just has to be in the right spot. This one ended up on my cottage on Lake Michigan
I love everything from the weaving pattern within the jute to the durablity of the carpet. Jute is very durable around pets (my cat loves to use my rugs as cat scratchers) yet is very stylish and fits within most room decors. For the price, you can't really beat the size and quality of this rug.

This hand-woven jute rug is a great rug. We have it in a high traffic area, so we are constantly replacing rugs. However, this rug can be used on either side. One side is lighter than the other, so we plan on flipping it when the other side gets worn out. Carpet smelled at first, but after a day the smell was gone. The jute just has an odor, but it goes away.
