I purchased two of these rugs, 9'x12' and 6'x9' for my living room and dining room. Other retailers have the same rugs for 2-3 times the price so the Overstock rug is a great value. The product description say's they are cotton backed, which is correct however, there are small rubber dots to help keep it in place which is a nice touch. One odd thing I discovered after delivery is the pattern runs in opposite directions on the 6'x9' rug vs the 9'x12' rug. It could be an issue for some people if the rugs are sitting side by side. Both rugs smell like fresh cut grass, which is wonderful. The 6'x9' rug has a couple of visible knots in the weave, it is something I would not accept in a higher priced rug but for under *****, it's fine. The pattern is consistent and binding is well done. The 9'x12' rug has some minor weaving issues. Nothing serious but I was a little disappointed to see the cross weave runs at a bit of an angel. Once again, for the price, I'm NOT going to complain. Overall, I'm a happy customer and would order again.
The looks of this area rug is very nice, but it is hard as a rock,if you want a soft rug do not buy this. It feels like walking on rocks bare footed. I wanted something soft i didn't relize what sea grass felt like.But that's me,it could be what someone else wants.
The quality of this rug is great and is was much cheaper than I would find in the stores. Recommend!

I love these seagrass rugs! I have them all over my house. They are incredibly durable, add a wonderful texture to a room, and stand up to just about everything, including three very active and playful cats :-) And, the prices on seagrass rugs from Overstock.com can't be beat. If you consider this rug, you need to remember seagrass is a natural material - don't expect a perfectly smooth rug that is soft underfood - by definition, seagrass is rough and knobby with some uneven spots, and at first has an "outdoorsy" kind of smell that I personally love - I actually wish it didn't fade away. To me, walking barefoot on these rugs almost feels like an acupressure massage! Just don't buy one if you have small children that would want to sit and play on it.
