Although not rated for outdoors, I am using this on my covered screen porch. I love the look and the color (like heads of wheat). It laid flat immediately. The texture is much thicker and coarser than the last sisal rug I had, with a larger weave, so it is not as soft on bare feet, but it is beautiful and more hefty. It appears to be well made and the binding matches the sisal nicely.
I had wanted a rug like this for my sun room for a very long time, but all the other catalogs and websites where I saw them had them priced way out of my range. When I found this on Overstock, I was stunned at the price difference and thrilled that I could finally get it! It arrived quickly and it looks even better than I imagined. It seems to be of excellent quality, there is no fraying or untidy spots on it and the style is perfect for the room. The price paid makes the value excellent, as I know the very same rug is elsewhere for considerably more and added in shipping and handling charges makes it even more. Overstock's free shipping is a huge plus. It was packaged for safe delivery and easy to open and put in place.
I have this rug AND the Hand-woven Braided Jute Rug (6' x 9') Item #: 11405791. They are in the same color family, and I was definitely looking for this sisal rug to be less "blond". I didn't want the yellow. The quality is great... just expected the color to be closer to the picture. If you're between the two rugs because the color is what you want, I think the other one is prettier and softer in person. Both are fairly no, so I can't speak to the wear of one over the other.
I love the color and the quality of this area rug. It is very durable and will last for long time.

My daughter was delighted with this gift. I was worried that it would curl from being rolled up for shipping, but it lies flat and the backing keeps it from moving on her flooring. It looks just like the picture and is exactly what she wanted. Better price than we could find elsewhere.
