Has the wonderful look of a sisal, but with softness! Texture is beautiful - everyone that comes over comments on the rug and wants to know where I got it from. Only minor downfall - a little shedding - but it has dissipated after a few months.
This rug was a significant disappointment. It arrived on time and was absolutely beautiful in appearance. However, it smelled extremely musty. We purchased it to put in a newly renovated basement, but the odor permeated the main room and made it unpleasant to sit in. I am not sure if the odor came from the rug processing or is part of the natural smell of the jute/hemp used to make the rug. Either way, the rug is on its way out of the basement (after 2 weeks of hoping it would air out) and we had to purchase a replacement rug. Given the expense of shipping a rug back to Overstock and the limited return window, I will not purchase another rug from this website.
