There was only one other review on here when I bought these. I always rely on reviews. As earlier mentioned, this product frays at the edges. I needed to work with a new jute rug in the room (which I bought on Overstock) and absolutely love! Yes it does fray "a little" but not a fact that bothers me enough not be happy with putting it on my table everyday. They wipe up easily and work well for me. I would recommend to a friend who is not hung up with perfection. I think that "casual" decor speaks for itself. "Don't worry ....Be happy!"
