flat weave, but not comfortable underfoot. Shows roll up marks still and it has been a few weeks since install. Had to put three mats under it to feel any softness, and it still is not right. Decided to keep it since I will leave it under my winter rug as padding and sound proofing for downstairs neighbor. Got the brown edge and it curls up in the corner will have to tape it down to prevent tripping. Would not get it again.
One of my kids spilled a small amount of water on this rug and it is stained. I blotted all of the excess water out but 3 days later the stain is still there. If you have any risk of even water spilling on this carpet I would not get it.
Someone spilled something on it when it was not even month old and stain would not come out. Followed cleaning instructions and stain couldn't not be removed. Call overstock to inform rug was defective and wanted another one and extremely disappointed I spent so much on a rug that is ruined.
I had high hopes for this rug, but as I witnessed, and some other reviewers have mentioned, it stains VERY easily. Even though it is known that natural fiber rugs require special care, I know of other people who have jute rugs and have cleaned theirs with ease in the event of spills - even while using a Bissell! This rug on the other hand...I haven't even had it for a few weeks and it is already ruined! My husband dripped coffee on it and for some reason that ended up coming up, however, WATER ended up on the rug as well and now there are a bunch of big dark spots! (Even after blotting as the directions say). The rug looks very nice, but it is just not a practical solution to your living space if you plan on actually walking on it.
Nice heavy rug... jute is lighter and woven thinner than some decorator brands, but I actually prefer it. Looks great and feels heavy, the cats love it but so far no pulls. Has some rubber backing, but we'll get a rug pad anyway. Great deal for the $$!!
