The ivory stripes are not ivory at all, much darker with almost a goldish tinge, like maybe champagne color. It looks "aged" and dingy. Needed a more pure ivory or off white, really wanted this to work. Also the thickness of the rug is great, and the texture of the weave is fine, but like one reviewer, mine also had a very noticeable black spot on one side, I have no idea what it is. AND there are other areas with variations in the "braided-look" weave, spots that look like a teased & tangled hair/fuzzy spots (like they've had an encounter with the mean side of velcro!), and seems like it would pick easily and look & worn old way before it's time. This is one of three rugs in my order where quality is just not up to par. Not sure what's going on, but hoping overstock gets the hint and employs more stringent quality checks of merchandise before sending out to customers. :/ At least they have good customer service. Have to exchange this one.
This rug is AWESOME. It is beautiful and perfect for my space. HOWEVER, when I unrolled it, there were black, moldy-looking spots all over one side:( So disappointing as it is being advertised as a rug that can be reversed so it lasts 2x as long. I contacted customer service and they are sending a replacement; it's just such a pain to roll it back up, stuff it in the packaging and schlep it to UPS:(
wasn't expecting much since they were so cheap but i do love the way they look - they seem to get loose strings and knots easy is only complaint - but other than that for the price they were better than another set of rugs i ordered from overstock that i now have to return because of the quality - so all in all they are great for laundry kitchen or entrance - they do need slip pads but that wasn't so bad and they are also reversible which is great - we'll see how they clean up in a month or so :)
Looks great in our beach style living room, very neutral... Love this rug!

Great rug for the price. There were a few imperfections in the rug, maybe the braid was glued??....I couldn't figure it out. However I really do like it and it will work well for our needs.
