The colors in this rug are all I could ask for. My walls are plain (new house), and this is my anchor point to go wild! I haven't really subjected it to rough wear. It is being used as a bedside rug over hardwood floors, so no one's toes get cold while searching for slippers. I recommend, as with any rug, getting non-skid pad or backing strips if using it on a hard surface. The texture is great underfoot. Had it been larger, I would have gotten one for the living room. A good product at a reasonable price.
I must really like this rug, since I have purchased it twice now. My first one was ruined by a cat with a urinary problem (before I got her on medication) and I had to toss it. I tried another rug in the meantime, but just was not as pleased with it. So I was tickled to see this one was still available and I went back to the tried and true! This is a not a "soft" rug, so I would not recommend it for someplace you will walk on it barefoot (unless you like the impromptu foot massage you get while doing so) or sit on it. It is also very thick, so I would not recommend it for someone with tripping issues (older folks?) I sometimes have to remember to "step up" at the edges. The colors are not as bright as my monitor shows, but blend well with just the right amount of pop if you are not really looking for a bright" rug to stand out, but one that enhances its surroundings. It is well made and sturdy and vacuums up easily. However, if you spill on it, be careful as some cleaning products can take some of the color out of the rug. I suggest dabbing with water and a mild soap solution. Luckily, the pattern of the rug is very busy, so it forgives a multitude of spills. (Mine is in my kitchen, so more prone to oops moments.)
I can appreciate this beautiful handmade rug with wonderful detail. For my kitchen (with dark wood stain cabinetry), the rug was way too dark, and the family thought the texture was too rough and thick for the kitchen. I believe the jute rug would be great in an entry way. It is a beautufl piece and nice quality rug.
