I was a little worried, never purchased a rug sight unseen. It's large and inexpensive. Thought it might be plasticky, but it's not. I have boys, and dogs, so I wanted a rug I could hose off. I don't think anyone would know this was an outdoor rug. So, I'm pleased. It is taking a chance because who wants to return such a large item. I relied on the reviews, which is why I am writing one. Good luck.
