This is not a regular rug, it is a bunch of cloth knotted to the backing. It looks unique and colorful. The difficulty lies in vacuuming it. You really can't use the carpet beater and it will catch the strands and pull them out. The carpet looks OK, but I wouldn't buy it again.
I have purchased several wonderful rugs from Overstock. I was excited to get this one, but disappointed when it arrived. The colors were all off, not at all as pictured. It was like they made this rug from left over materials that they had from all three designs of this series. Fortunately, I was able to return for a full refund. I did have to purchase a box at the UPS store for $40 because they would not accept the rug for shipping with tape, but Overstock is worth the risk!
