If you want the Pottery Barn Jute rug but want to save a nice chunk of change, this is the seagrass rug for you. Like any seagrass rug, it does "bloom", meaning little loops will pop up with everyday use. To me, that simply adds to the character of the piece. If it really bothers you, take your finger and push the "bloom" back into the weave. My dog loves chewing antlers, and we have found that with intense chewing sessions, the antler can often go between the loops and become a dangerous promontory, lol. Again, very easy to remove the object and push the weave back together. Vacuum without the beater, just to keep the bloom to a minimum, although it doesn't destroy the carpet with the beater, just dulls in spots slightly. Also, use a rug pad to prevent slippage and scratches to wood floors. This rug is much softer and thicker than the bordered sisals out there, and adds so much more texture and cushion. I did not find the "dust" problem some have mentioned. Thanks, Overstock.
My husband and I extensively reviewed natural fiber rugs before deciding on this one and we couldn't be happier! The rug is exactly as pictured and as described. Other reviewers mention a smell which fades over time, and we noticed only a faint smell. As well, we saw reference to a green tinge to the rug and ours doesn't have that. It's a perfect natural color, and the sand comments are very true, but I think that's the nature of these kinds of rugs. I definitely recommend getting an appropriate hardwood floor rug pad, as we waited to buy one and in just a week, the sand had already scratched our wood floors... The rug is comfortable to walk on in bare feet, other than the occasional sharp fiber, which can easily be trimmed off. The texture of the rug definitely makes gliding chairs a bit more cumbersome than a smooth surface, but it's not THAT difficult and completely worth it. We highly recommend this rug and are grateful for the other reviews that helped us make the decision!
Love this rug! Could have spent 2 times the amount at you-know-where! The rug is exactly what we wanted. It is rich in color, soft under foot and perfect size. (Hides dirt too...always a bonus!)

This is exactly what I was looking for. I just got the rug and it looks like something you'd get from Pottery Barn. Of course, it's got a hand woven quality which makes the weave uneven at times but I think that's to be expected. I think it a little darker than the picture and it has variability in the color, meaning that there may be one line that runs the whole length that's a little darker than the rest. It's subtle though. I think the rug is soft, not scratchy, but the knots are big so your bare feet will definitely feel the texture. One thing that I did notice is that my puppy found the messy knots immediately. I'll have to stay on top of that! All in all, a good product so far. There is a minor odor but that's been my experience with these jute and natural canvas type threads. It should go away. ALMOST 2 YEARS LATER: The rug is still good but I have to say it's so filthy underneath. The amount of sand/dirt/dust/fibers that sit under the rug is gross. If you don't use a rug pad you can expect it to dull your wood floors as well. I still like it but that part bothers me.
This is a very good looking and thick rug. However, it collects a tremendous amount of dust and it is hard to maintain clean. It also sheds a lot and the knots comes apart very easily. I don't know if it is the quality of this particular one or this is a flaw with most jute rugs but it is not good for those who are clean freaks like me. Other than that, aesthetically it is a peace of art and it looks great in my living room.
I have always wanted to splurge on a large rug like this (I also bought it in a 9x12). I researched your high end stores like PB & Restoration Hardware and this is such a great deal. I took the chance and was blown away by the quality. The rug is nice and thick and actually feels good on your feet. This rug will pretty much go anywhere with anything. I originally purchase it for our bedroom but ended up loving it so much I put it in our family room instead, where more peps would see it! It was an immediate update to our space. You will not be sorry, go for it!
This is a pretty heavy rug, but I still have an issue with it migrating a bit even with it grounded by a coffee table and loveseat. There are several pulls in the weave which I assume are the nature of the jute. They can be easily tucked back in when needed. There are multi colors in it that can be picked up (brown, beige/tan, gray) which is nice.
I needed a large rug to place under my kitchen that was reasonably priced. I read a lot of the reviews so I was pleasantly surprised. My rug didn't smell bad had some pulls that I could fix, it's a jute rug so I expected this. Its a great value for the money. Gives my kitchen some texture.
I really love the look of my Sahara rug. It's exactly as pictured. It's very similar to the Pottery Barn jute that I had my eye on. Fortunately for me, their double priced rug was sold out and they didn't know when they'd get more. There is one difference however, but it really doesn't matter to me. If you've actually touched the comparable PB rug in one of their stores, you'd know that it is much softer than the Sahara. Not really a big issue for me. There is no strong smell with the rug and only minor shedding which should disappear with time. All in all, it is a lovely, thick, and beautifully textured rug that really adds a lot to my living room.
I bought this jute area rug based on the other reviews I read and the photos and description on Overstock. It is exactly what I had hoped for and I am extremely happy with this purchase! It's hard to buy rugs sight unseen and even harder to return them but this rug is perfect in every way- color, style, size, quality and look. It's heavy enough to lay flat and not furl at the edges and looks elegant on the wood floors in my living room. I live near the beach so this style worked great for me- casual beachy chic! I would definitely recommend this rug!
