If you are looking for a thin, natural fiber rug of excellent quality, look no further. This is a beautiful statement piece that could easily handle any high foot-traffic area of the home. With the nature of this material (and the fact that it's hand-woven) you can typically expect imperfections, but this one is surprisingly near flawless with an impressive tight weave. The trade-off is that it is not at all cozy, and a bit rough underfoot. It's important to know this before ordering because not all jute rugs are woven the same. This particular rug is very comparable to either a Seagrass rug or a Sisal rug, in both texture and style.. (ie: rough but durable with a consistent weave pattern). I also like how this rug offers an extra inch from the standard 9x12. However, if you are looking for a thicker, but still tightly woven jute rug with a softer touch, try item # 14175477. If you are looking for a downright luxurious jute rug, and can appreciate the natural characteristics of a softly woven natural fiber rug, try item # 12349082. Hope this review helps in your search :)
This rug looks way more expensive than what i paid for it on overstock. i am very happy with the look of it in our living area. obviously jute is not a very "comfy" material, so my husband complains about that, but i love the functionality for now. so far so good.

As this rug is hand-woven there are consequences that come with that. The rug looks of of a kind. It has knots and a few stray ends that come up in the middle of the rug, but I like that are a few uneven parts in it's texture. All around it's a good rug if you are going for a rustic look. It's soft to walk on, which is a wonderful surprise for a jute rug! Another surprise is the absence of a strong odor. I know a lot of people complain about the smell of jute rugs, but I have not noticed any odor.
