This 8 x 11 carpet was purchased for a home office area with a lot of activity. It's only been on the floor for a couple of months, but it seems to be holding up pretty well to the traffic. The end that was at the center of the roll had a stubborn curl. I had to put the dictionary, encyclopedia, and an ottoman on top of it for a few weeks to get it to lay flat. If you decide to get this carpet, be deliberate about how it is oriented so you can put furniture on the curled end after its unrolled. That said, I bought this because I needed a large-size, inexpensive replacement carpet. It's very neutral and would look good with almost any decor, and the Greek key pattern around the edges is an enduring classic. It definitely isn't made of upscale materials; I generally prefer to purchase carpets that are 100% wool for beauty, extended durability, and other aesthetic qualities. So yes, I'm a total carpet snob. But if you need to cover a big area with a fairly sturdy carpet that doesn't look totally cheapo and tacky, this carpet does the trick.
Great rug. I was worried that it wouldn't be as elegant as a typical indoor rug, but it's surprisingly soft. The colors match perfectly. The only problem was the delivery person left it out in the rain and didn't ring our doorbell; yes we were home the whole time. Plus they folded it in half during transit which stretched out the woven center and created bubbling. I'm hoping we can stretch it back as it relaxes. Otherwise we love the rug and fits perfectly in our formal living room.
This rug in an incredible value for the money. I was worried that it would be too thin, but even without a pad underneathe, it is fine. It is easy to vacuum and even with all the activity this rug has seen over the last 6 weeks, there are no signs of wear and tear.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is most likely OK - I have had it for about 2 weeks now. It came with the borders soiled and where the rug was rolled for shipment, once the fabric relaxed, the stripes of the roll still remained. Having said that, it is my opinion that it had been stored for a very very long time.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The discription was accurate.
We love this rug, good size great quality. The border is a very light tan (lighter than the photo) but it works well for us nonetheless.
