Detailed review because I know how much I count on other people's reviews. Hope this helps someone. Ordered on the 19th, received on the 22nd. In my experience, Overstock is swift to ship...always within a few days. This is my second rug, the other one I purchased was an 8x10. So I am duplicating review: This is exactly what I wanted. Really difficult to purchase rugs on line....esp. jute, sisal type rugs because hard to tell the tightness of weave, thickness (even though usually mentioned in description) and color. Kind of a crap shoot. Weighty and tightly woven, this rug is slightly less thick than previous jute rugs that have lived in our home and suffered the wrath of six animals. The color is, what I would call, the typical (natural) jute coloring. Light tan with some striations in lighter tan and darker tan. Overall...light tan (not golden, more neutral). Works with so many styles and color schemes. Because it is tightly woven, not nubby, and has fringe on either end...it is rather elegant and not so rustic as some other jute rugs. Brightens a room and looks particularly swell on wood floors, dark or light. Had little odor. I had to put my nose to the rug to smell the slightly grassy fragrance which I love. There will be dust beneath the rug which can easily be swept up periodically. It is the nature of jute. Vacuums well. Our animals have made mistakes on previous jute rugs. I have always used a combination of vinegar, baking soda, dawn and water and most stains came up without a trace. BUT...I imagine it will be easier to clean this rug because it is not quite as thick. I do not use a rug pad because our furniture anchors it. If I had this in a hall way I would likely add a rug pad to keep it in place. The rug is not rough...soft to the touch.....comfortable on the feet and I believe a baby could crawl on it happily. Hope this helps. It is a beautiful rug.
I typically only purchase items that have been reviewed and have a decent rating....but square rugs are so difficult to find at affordable prices! I am positively thrilled with the quality of this jute rug. Weighty, tightly woven and perfectly square. Arrived within a couple of days...beautifully and professionally packaged. I find it difficult to believe the original cost of over seven hundred, but I would gladly have paid three hundred. Sits in the foyer with an understated, easy-going elegance. My animals love it too...makes a good back scratch for them!!
This rug added texture and fullness underneath a cowskin. Placed under a round glass dining room table (w/cow skin on top) it looks great. The rug is chunkier in person and comfortable enough to walk on the barefoot. I would not recommend sitting on it unless you are thick-skinned.
I am very pleased with this rug. I wanted a very natural look in my room and this rug is perfect. Other reviews helped me decide to purchase and I was not disappointed. The size is perfect, but I didn't need it to be exact. The thickness is good...still fits under the door while having enough substance to feel like a rug when walking across. Very natural look and feel.
We love this rug. We have gotten so many compliments on how good looking it is - rare to find a square Jute with fringe that is also soft enough to walk barefoot on, thick enough to be comfy, and has nice highlights that make the room feel bright and happy. Love love love it! Only wish it wasn't out of stock so we could get another one for our bedroom.
Love this rug! It is a nice neutral color that will go with any color. I love the square size and the price was amazing for the quality of the rug. I was worried that it might shed, but I haven't had any problems with that. There was no smell right out of the bag. It lays flat and does not move on the wood floor with a thick rug pad. It is not rough to walk on, as I saw on some of the other reviews. Very nice quality.
The rug is very nice and beach-y looking but its fibers make for a surface that you wouldn't want to sit on directly. I can't complain, though, because it is jute, after all.

This rug looks great under my round dining table. I searched for quite some time for a square rug that wasn't over $300. Since the rug doesn't have much traffic, it's perfect for the dining area. Very pleased!
