I love the look of this carpet but I'm afraid it doesn't stand up to even minimal use. I wouldn't be able to recommend it to others for that reason. I have owned several seagrass rugs (including a beautiful one I purchased earlier this year from Overstock.com that I love) and while I know that part of their beauty is that the naturally occurring slubs and irregularities in the weave, this is simply a breakdown of the product from walking on it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exact, but on close inspection it is clear that the grey color is accomplished by interweaving black and grey fibers that are more obvious than in the picture
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It looks great and feels soft ont he feet, but is really fragile. We have had it for about 2 weeks and it is not in a high traffic area (under a dining room table that rarely gets used) but the fibers are becoming loose and giving a sort of scruffy, fuzzy appearance. Also, several of them pulled completely away from the backing when vacuumed.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
