I've waited almost of year before writing this review. I was absolutely thrilled when I unrolled this area rug. The colors were and still are vibrant. There are rich deep rust tones with orange and yellow highlights which magically morph before your eyes depending on where you're standing and the type of lighting ( natural, incandescent, and LED). This rug gave a warming touch to very large living room. My two complaints happen to be the downfall of this beautiful area rug. I have spent a lot of time pulling hemp splinters from my children's knees, legs, hands, and bottoms. It's been 1 year and the rug is still shedding like crazy and the splinters are still causing mayhem. I like the rug, but I have had to move it to the dinning room where the table can sit on it instead of the children.
Love this rug! We had been looking for and trying out rugs for our living room for months when we decided to give this one a try. I had read the only review about this rug and thought it was worth checking out. First rug that both my husband and myself loved and could agree on. I agree with the other review about the ends being a little lumpy and the edges a little uneven, but as I stretch the rug to fit my room it gets better and better. It it soft and feels great underfoot.

i saw this same rug as high as 1400 elsewhere on the net. so i was thrilled to find this at overstock and with the o club reward, it was the best price. reviews on the other sites alerted me to edges not being perfectly straight. but the color and uncommon size of 9 x 12 were perfect for my room. dont expect hemp to be like wool, it is a different animal entirely. however, it is still nice to walk on in bare feet, and does not appear to shed so far. (we have had it almost a month now). the color is stunning and outweighs any other concerns.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. really cool rug, but like most things nowadays, not perfect. bound edges are lumpy. selvage edges are slightly crooked
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? good, although i had to request a supervisor to confirm manufacturer info.
