The rug is the one I envisioned for the room. It is very natural - some hard pieces woven in - and very thick.

I have debated on this rug for over a year but decided to buy, based on most reviews being favorable. The rug came packaged well. when I opened and rolled it out, I was concerned about the chemical smells other had written about. I was prepared for that with windows already open and the air conditioner fan on. This rug is beautiful!!! It has completely changed the look of my home and the price was far better than most of the places I had looked by at least $xxx.xx. There are not many stores in my area that even sell 10 x 14 sizes. The rug is soft and I also have a 62 lb dog and grandchildren and I have had NO problems at all. I wish I had ordered a year ago now and glad I did this time as this size sells out fast and comes less often. I couldn't be happier. There are some nubs of course, but it just gives it depth. I have been able to vacum with no problems by turning the dial of the beater bar up the the highest setting. This is truly a beautiful rug!
I happen to really like this rug regardless of whether it is jute (which I believe it is) or sisal which it is advertised as. Rug arrived very quickly. Unrolled it and let it air out with the windows open. I saw the complaints of smell and I would have to say if it was a humid summer day I would have this rug in an room with A/C and a dehumidifier since these rugs by their very nature tend to hold moisture! In fact a rug pad is a must for these rugs least you end up with the print of the rug on your floor. The pad lets air circulate! Any way the rug is just what I wanted for the TV room!
Do not buy this rug unless you are looking for a hold over rug for a higher quality rug. This rug has actually sticks poking out of it!!! (No exaggeration, wear socks or shoes). Looks beautiful at first, but after three weeks, there are already signs of wear. We are a family of two with no pets or children. Maybe better suited for a guest bedroom that doesn't see much use, not the living room!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! Bought the pad too. I have been watching for a 10x14 and got this at a great mark down. Read all the reviews on all the rugs.This one is soft, has no smell and didn't have any of the fibers/dust with it that I read about. Just love it!! Love the texture!!
This rug was good for a jute rug. We bought it with the intention of layering a bohemian rug on top of it but it was much thicker than I expected and the braids raise up higher than I thought. Also, it isn't soft. Maybe other reviewers are comparing it to other natural fiber rugs when they say it's soft. It's not comfortable, but it looks really pretty. Ours was super dusty and smelly when it arrived and it began to fray a little bit on the edges after a few days of very little use. But overall, if it had worked with the layered rug look I would have kept it because it does look pretty. Also the edges aren't quite straight, maybe if you could pull each side tight it would lay straighter?
I have this rug under another carpet rug in a high traffic area and I have two small children that run like maniacs on it; one month later, it has held up well! There have been some knots here and there that have unraveled, but I just twist and tuck back in and you can't tell. Just do not vacuum using the roller! I would definitely buy again.
Looks great. feel great. Not sure how it will hold up as some areas have unraveled a bit with my dog's claws (we need to cut them obviously!) but i think that is somewhat normal for natural fiber rugs. I love this rug and would recommend and reorder. If you are a perfectionist, maybe not for you but if you like natural elements, this is what I would get! Still not sure how to clean it the best as it is so heavy there is no way to shake it out but i vacuum it fine.
We get a tremendous number of compliments on this rug, and love it because it is very forgiving with three children. The fibers produce a lot of dirt. We think it's funny because it looks like sand, and it's only underneath the rug, so no one sees it, but it's still there. We have some allergies in our family, and no one has any issues with the natural fibers. It's a great rug for a good price all in all.
Wasn't expecting too much from this rug as it was priced so low. However, it was much much better than I could have expected from a much higher priced rug. Very heavy to carry! surprisingly soft under your feet. We have dogs and children, its seems to be holding up well with both two legged and four legged traffic. So pleased I have ordered another one!
