Have this under the bed, so it only hangs out at each side. The side my husband gets out of bed on has begun to unravel... Literally the way it is woven, it is just falling apart. This part of the room receives traffic 2 times a day for less than a minute! He gets into bed, gets out of bed, bare feet...no reasonable excuse or explanation for the fact that it has fallen apart on that side. We had it for 1 month when this happened. There is also an unbelievable amount of dirt/dust that is coming off it, and has built up into a gray powder (superfine/abrasive) underneath. It will kill the hardwood shine, so it will need a mat underneath...if you are feeling lucky and order this, do not use it in a high traffic area (our zero-traffic area should be an indicator as to it's wearability), or anywhere you cannot lift it to vacuum underneath (the grass breaks down to dust when you walk on it even with socks), or without a mat. People with allergies to dust would go crazy with this...it is literally breaking down on its own, it would be weird and amusing if It weren't so big/expensive.
I just purchased my second of this size rug. I have had the first rug for a year in my dining room and it has held up beautifully. It is thick and holds up well to my 2 cats and 2 dogs, who all love to sit on and sometimes scratch/bite it. It still looks good. I purchased a second one to go under my queen size bed and it seems to be exactly the same in size, color, and quality as the rug I purchased over a year ago. As far as the dirt/dust that other reviewers have mentioned, that is the dust from your house accumulating under the rug. Since there is no backing on jute rugs, you have to vacuum under it occasionally in order to remove the dust that falls through. Rugs with backings simply hold the dust inside of them. I will be purchasing more of these rugs in various sizes for my home. Very good value and not at all orangey.

I saved up for an entire year to buy new laminate flooring. Last Sat. I had it installed. It was $1000 with installation. The floor is beautiful. I ordered this rug and when it arrived I was so pleased. It is well made and nice looking. I couldn't wait to put it down. I have had it down on my new floor only one week. Today, after the grandchildren left, I decided to pick it up and sweep under it. OMG! Under the entire rug was a sandy gritty substance! I instantly removed the rug and swept, vac, and washed the new flooring only to realize that this rug scratched and marked my entire floor where it was laying! I could just cry! I read another review that said she had a sandy material under her rug also, but no mention of this total scratching. The rug actually left lines where every single row of thread is! OVERSTOCK is great and will refund my money for the "inconvenience" but this is not an inconvenience it is a disaster. I am so sad. I will continue to shop with OVERSTOCK because I feel they are a good company, but they need to get this rug off their website. I Have no choice but to cover my floor now forever and ever and it is brand new....

When reading the reviews on these rugs one of the things that caught my eye was how soft everyone said it was. My rug came in yesterday and we laid it out. It is so pretty. I have two small children and we are ALWAYS on the floor. Sitting, crawling, laying. I don't think the other reviewers have small children or spend much time on the floor. if so, they actually would have said that the rug is very hard to the touch. It is hard on the knees, and it leaves stringy straw stuff all over your clothes. I am keeping the rug because it is pretty and my children won't be small forever. Great buy for the cost. By the way, the rug is made of 100% Jute, no Sisal. Jute is a natural plant fiber. Because of this the rug has a bit of a "dirt" smell. I assume it will go away with time.
I have purchased this twice now, mainly because I do have two bigger dogs and their claws can uproot the natural fibers. However, cutting them was no big deal at all and didn't look cut either (Nor did it make anything fall apart!). I would have kept on doing so until one day my dog decided to get sick on it :( Ewwww, not going to try to get that out of there! But, it would have lasted and looked great for many more months had that not happened. The dogs love to scratch their backs on it and lets them know that this is the only room in the house where this is acceptable. It looks really great in a home with a rustic feel to it. If you have high traffic, kids, or dogs, it is a great buy! Compared to others that cost wayyy more, this rug is both durable and pleasing to the eye.
Holy cow, if you're in need for an outdoor rug that not only look great, but also feel great under your feet, then this is it! Don't worry about ordering this, as it's perfect!. Great Customer Service as usual, that is what keeps me coming back.

I put this rug in one of the guest bedrooms. The size and color is genuine to the description. I was surprise that it was as smooth to walk on being that visually it looks rough. A great find for the price. I've seen other rugs of this type in smaller sizes offered for at least $100's more. Thank you O.co.

This was a thick nice quality sisal rug. We used it over a year in our home and although difficult to clean it held up very nicely. It's pretty thick and was very heavy. it has a very nice honey color and made for a nice neutral palette in our great room.
I needed a rug with no pattern but some variation in color. I never purchased this style/make of rug, but I love it. It flattened out in 2 minutes and I found no smell at all. At first it was strange to walk on...nubby...but after getting use to it. I love the feel. No issue with loose threads, it is obvious this rug has a natural imperfect look. Based on the one review when the lady said her laminate floor was ruined due to dirt scratching her floor, I check often. I have real hardwood floors and other than a fine layer of dirt..nothing ! I would recommend
We purchased this for underneath our dining room table, for the price - it's unbeatable. Yes, it has a natural, earthy smell but we left it out in the lanai for a few days to air out, and it's fine now. It's great quality. Has that natural look to it I love!
Ordered this rug to put under our Dining Table. It is a great natural, earthy rug is that is what you are looking for. Looks exactly as pictured. There has been no smell as other users have experienced. We've only had it for a day but have seen no dust so far and the quality seems good. Will give it some more time to check for fraying / dust. Great value overall.
I LOVE the way this rug looks! I was so excited when it arrived and it looks even better in person. The rug feel GREAT on your feet and I love the chunky, natural look. I got this for under our table and planned to get another one to go in our adjoining living room. The rug laid out well and I didn't have any of the curling issues or odors that others had reported. The positives stop there. Within a week of having this rug out, the long edge was looking extremely ragged. We have a very casual, natural look in our house, but even this stood out. Additionally, I wanted a sisal rug for durability and this was advertised as being "sisal", but the manufacturer's tag says "100% Jute". I am extremely disappointed that is was misrepresented online. I have also noticed an increase in sand and grit near our backdoor near the table and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Well, they must have made this rug at the beach because when I lifted the rug there was a TON of fine sand under it. Needless to say, I am sending it back. If you just want a rug that looks great and you won't be using it then this is for you. If you plan to use this rug in a main living area, choose something else.
