I was very pleasantly surprised by this rug. It looks great on our hardwood floor, goes great with blue accented room, esp. blue and white ceramics. The color is perfect- a cobalt blue and navy blue with ivory. There seem to be lots of loose grass strands at first, but that is lessening as I vacuum them. You definitely need a rug pad or you go slipping and sliding. I didn't know what to expect on the edging, thought I'd miss tassels or something, but the edges are nicely done and look fine. I thought it might be uncomfortable and coarse, but it feels fine, and I walk across it with barefeet all the time. My dog likes it too :-) I'd recommend this rug to anyone who wants a natural, casual rug with the blue accent color.

This rug looked great when it came, however it fell apart within a month. Little strings keep falling out of it and no matter how many times I vacuum, they are all over the house. There are also many parts of the rug where a weaved section comes apart, sticking out, making it easy to catch your foot and trip. I really like the look of this rug when I got it, but now I am really upset about wasting money on a poorly made rug that fell apart right away. And since I bought it on overstock there is no warranty or way to return it.

This is a nice looking rug, however it was problematic in the dining area. Tried to put it in the dining area of vacation/rental property, however, it curled up at ends and the dining chair feet kept getting caught in the loose weave of the rug. It's just a little too loose for my purpose, so it's sitting in the garage now. It would be better used on back porch or area where the feet of any furniture are large enough not to get stuck in the weave of the sea grass.

This is a beautiful rug and I loved it, for about a month. Then we "lived" on it and it's been driving me crazy ever since. The first thing to happen was the fibers it's made of started to shed and pull off. The stick to clothing so I find them everywhere! The edge of it looks like fur instead of a nice straight line. I purchased this to go under my dining room table and moving the chairs to sit is a pain. They continually get caught and stuck in the double weave. Then the most frustrating part; the double weave started to release, and is now completely unraveling. It started at the edge, I believe due to foot traffic, and has continued so much so that I trip on parts coming out of the middle. I was able to glue it down at first, then hand sew, now it's becoming a lost cause. I am extremely displeased with the quality of this rug!
I ordered this rug for my den and it is just perfect. Love the blue/off white colors. It is a natural fiber rug so some shedding should be expected. Some shifting as well because it can only be woven so tight. I would have given this five stars but I do feel like the weave is just a little too loose. Otherwise it is just what I wanted.
