Ok, folks. Here's the scoop. I anguished over ordering this rug for the better part of a week. Some of the reviews were so bad! I'm SOOOOO glad I decided to roll the dice. The truth is this is the best value sisal rug you can get for the money. Period. To dispel some of the inaccurate reviews: 1) It is sisal, not jute. It's a tight, even weave with a very low profile. Easy to open a door over top this rug. 2) It is the perfect color of khaki. It's not yellow. The tag does not say "Maize"... it says "Khaki." The rug is a nice khaki and the border is almost a perfect match to the rug color. 3) Yes, the ends curl up. It's rolled REALLY tightly when it arrives. This is a no brainer... put something heavy on them for a few days. 4) It doesn't smell at all. Not even a little bit. 5) The cotton binding/border is nice and even. It measures about 2.5 inches wide. Just right. 6) There is a rubber/latex backing on this rug. It doesn't need a rug pad. 7) I haven't experienced a single bit of fiber shedding so far. It's not like jute, which can really release bits of fiber strands and "fiber dust." So the bottom line is... if you are on the fence, get it. You won't regret it. I'm thrilled.

We really like the rug. It is in our front entry hall and blends nicely with the the oriental rug in the nearby dining room. In the picture it has a bit of a pinkish cast, but it is really more golden khaki, which is what I wanted. I received it in less than a week, and it was in perfect condition. It took about a week for it to lie completely flat.
Rug was pretty much as described. Its held up fairly well as we are using it in the kitchen which gets quite a bit of traffic and fallen debris. The corners are a little soft, so I put down sticky tape to hold it down. It gets vacuumed once a week and its holding up. For the price, its definitely a go.

I returned another carpet at a similar price that had flaws. I decided against reordering that one and got this one instead. This carpet is a huge leap in quality over the other one. It laid flat right away and looks much more expensive than the other sisal rug. The only drawback is that is is a bit scratcher on bare feet. Looks wonderful in my modern beach house.

I only gave this four stars as even though this is a great looking rug, it isn't very pet friendly. We have stained-concrete floors though-out our home and purchased this type of rug for my husband's office so his chair wouldn't mark up the floor. It works and looks great, however, dogs being dogs if they need to throw-up they seek this rug out! You cannot get the stain out that the cleaner to remove odors and residue leaves. It will leave a water mark type of stain. That said, this is at least our 5th rug over an 8 year period and we've been pleased with the look and durability of the sisal. I don't think they would do good in a high traffic area for the same reason, if they get stained you can't clean it very well. After the last one was "thrown-up" on and I cleaned it with the super dog stain remover and it left a mark I decided to take the whole rug outside and hose it down and see what happened, stain still there. Since we were home when the carpet was delivered the odor was minimal and was not noticeable after a short time and was totally gone in a day. "O" true to form shipped promptly and the price was great.
I initially purchased this after reading the great reviews. I was super excited when the rug came, but it did not last when I rolled out the rug. It was very rough to the touch. A similar sisal rug could be purchased at Sam's for around **** and its quality is far more superior than this rug. I have purchased many items on Overstock and have been very pleased with everything I have recieved up until this point.
I have been looking for a rug to put in my living room. We have hard wood floors and this rug was perfect! It arrived in a few days and I had no problem with the ends rolling up. It lays perfectly on the floor and has a rubber backing which is great on the wood floors. The rug is soft yet still feels durable. I am very pleased with this purchase - and what a great price!
I was a little hesitant ordering a rug I had never felt or seen in person but the reviews helped with that choice. The rug is a nice heavy weight, suprisingly soft and rolled out nearly perfect. Nothing a few books couldn't fix! Now it lays very flat. I shopped around for this rug and Overstocks price and shipping could not be beat. Great rug for a fantastic price!
Upon receiving this rug, we laid it out and immediately removed it from our home - the latex smell from the rug's backing was so strong, we couldn't keep it in the house. We keep it outside for 2 days and still, the smell was toxic. We returned this item - just awful.
