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!!
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.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? A tad bit darker
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality

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!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color in the picture is actually lighter than the actual color. The color is about two shades darker, but gorgeous!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is amazing for the price. Very well made!
This is a great rug for the price, I looked all over for the same size and everything cost double what this one did. I think it's a great buy and it looks really nice with the tassel edges, I am very happy with my purchase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color on the website shows lighter than what the rug is actually like in person.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great!
I am pleased and satisfied with this purchase. The rug looks great in my dinning room. There have been no foldings in the rug and we've started using it right away from the package. There seems to be very little shredding and it has not bothered us. We soon plan to change to wooden floors and the rug will blend into my interior all the more. Thanks to previous reviewers and overstock for a good product. Also, I was very thrilled by the fact that the rug was made in India. I like the Indian hand and crafts work.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was slightly on the darker side compared to the product.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was as described. Thick jute, little rough on the feet which feels good. well braided.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The product closely matched the description.
Great rug; have it under the dining table. VERY well priced; similar rug is listed for hundreds of dollars more on other sites. One question though: how do you get the fringe on the side of the rug to lay flat? I just got the rug so am hoping the fringe will lay flat soon............................thanks Oversock!
I expected this rug to be a lot lighter. It's a dark tan, very rough but I figured it was. I use it under my dining room table and love it. Since I have a toddler it is the perfect texture. When she throws or drops food on it, it doesn't immediately soak in, which is awesome. It gives me time to clean it up unlike some of our previous rugs.
This is my first time ordering from Overstock. Delivery was so fast, 3 days and love the $2.95 delivery charge. I Love, Love, Love this carpet. The picture does not do it justice. The colors are richer and it looks way more expensive than what I paid. It will add warmth to any room. I am going to use it in my living room with a white couch and dark wood furniture.
The rug it self is fantastic. The color is great, very organic/natural looking. It's heavy and looks great in our room. The only issue I have with the rug is it tends to leave this brown dust behind when moved. I think its the natural materials shedding. However, I think with a rug pad & less moving, it will be just fine. The price for this was definitely right! I think anyone would be pleased with it. :)
Great for dining room where you won't be walking on it.. too rough for a living room. No grass smell like other reviewers. Great if you are trying to find a square rug that's not expensive. Works well in our room to add another texture.
