This came exactly as previewed: size, color, texture, weave, and NO SMELL! We love it! My dog loves it too. I had to train him to not use it as a chew toy, but as others stated, I just pushed the pulled yarns to the underside. And it does feel excellent on bare feet. I highly recommend this for a rustic, beach, or casual design space.
First the color... it's super neutral, with an overall taupe look but with variations of caramels, beige & gray. This made me happy since some jutes can be more gold or orange. It's a bit chunkier and "bumpy" than I expected but I like it. I'm a little nervous that my dining chairs may snag it after continued use but we'll see! The jute itself is soft but the weave makes it "bumpy" which some may not love to walk on but it's a good foot massage! I was super nervous about ordering since it would cost too much to return but I think I'll be happy that I did. I just received today (quick ship!). I can tell it's shedding some already since I see the evidence on my socks. I don't notice any smell as some jute rug reviews mention. I'll try to update this review if I have any quality issues.
