  • Just as good as *****

    Really was a little apprehensive about buying the rug as I usually go 'name brand' on my sisals/jute, i.e., from ***** or *****.... BUT...this rug is GREAT! Just as nice quality, if not better...the rug pad is actually part of the rug, so I can eliminate the need for a rug pad. SUPER!

  • Very nice carpet for the price

    I ordered this carpet for under my kitchen table and it looked fantastic. My kitchen has a caribbean theme, so it was perfect. This carpet has no odor and roll's out perfectly. My big problem was when my dog had an accident. I found that liquid of any kind soak's right into the carpet and does not blot up. I cleaned the area and it look's as if I bleached the stain. I used mild soap and water. So, this is a wonderful carpet as long as nothing get's spilled on it as it does not clean well. I removed it from the kitchen and put it into the sun room with a piece of furniture on top of the stain to hide it. Bottom line, if you think there is a chance that something might spill I would pass on this.

  • great!

    great rug for under my kitchen table. It has some flecks of color sprinkled throughout so it hides any stray crumbs nicely! Great price - fast shipping and perfect!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • How is the quality of the product? very good
    • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
  • Great rug

    This is a fabulous rug. It is a rich color and soft enough to walk on barefoot. The only downside is that when the rug arrived it smelled unbelievably awful. I had to leave it outside for 2 days and even then it smelled a little when I brought it in. Now I have had it for more that 6 months and it is a great rug and a great value.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • How is the quality of the product? excellent
    • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
  • Nice rug

    This rug is much better quality than I anticipated. I wanted a rug with some "texture" for my dining room and it really adds some "pop" to the room. I am pleasantly surprised at how heavy (or maybe I should say thick) it is. The price is definitely great for such a rug.

    Have used it almost a year under the dinning room table at the beach. Gets lots of wear and tear and has stood up well. Also lots of sand...but "no problema" just drag it outside and hose it off

  • Curled at the edges

    When I bought this, it was to replace the same rug, that I had for a few years, same brand, same color, same rug. For some reason, after a month, the edges started to curl causing everyone to trip on it....I am really disappointed. this was a great rug for under the kitchen table.

  • Great rug!

    Exactly as advertised, and fabulous product for the price. There are similar rugs out there (i.e. Crate and Barrel) that are MUCH more expensive. Buy this instead...definitely worth it! Only difference is perhaps this is a little "rougher" looking, with fibers not quite as flat, but for using under a dining table, it's absolutely perfect. Very content with my purchase.

long wear, stain resistant material and looks good under dining table  on Apr 19, 2015

The materials listed are: Cotton, Fabric, Natural Fiber, Sisal - but there also seems to be rubber and probably glue. 1) Where can I find a complete list of materials; 2) Are the rugs treated with anything (protective coating, antibacterials, etc.); and 3) Can you confirm that they are VOC free and free of any other toxic materials?

whats the difference between the sisal and jute besides $5 ? lgallof on Dec 8, 2013

Answer This Question

Hello lgallof, we appreciate your inquiry. Both of them will carry a natural appearance with them as they are extracted from organic plants. So if you are just looking for natural element, you can choose any of jute or sisal designs. However, there are certain characteristics about both of these materials that you should know about. While jute rugs carry their brown appearance, sisal rugs are off-white or cream-colored. Once the weaving process of jute rugs is complete, they give a unique appearance. Each piece may look distinctly different after completion. Jute floor coverings are made up of smooth and soft natural fibers. These natural fibers also have a waxy sheen that looks a lot like flax or hemp. These natural fibers also have a waxy sheen that looks a lot like flax or hemp. On the other hand, sisal will give you a textured yarn touch. Jute rugs are highly durable as compared to several other rugs made up of synthetic fibers. However, they don't last very long in heavy foot traffic areas. It is better to choose these rugs for bedrooms and dining rooms where foot traffic is a bit lower. As far as entry hallways and living rooms in your house are concerned, sisal rugs may be more suitable. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us.

The materials said sisal and cotton, but when the rug arrived it has a "non skid" bottom that has a smell (glue, rubber, I'm not sure what). This material should be included in the list of materials, but it was not. I am airing it out to see if I can get the smell to clear, but am frustrated that it was not listed in the description. courtenayr on Feb 8, 2013

I'm sorry for your frustration. Thank you for letting the other customers know this information. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 11, 2013
I agree, it should be listed in the description. We have purchased two of these rugs and we liked the fact that it had a rubber backing. For that reason we didn't see a need for a carpet pad. The smell quickly goes away after 3-5 days. Give it time. bagwell1 on Apr 4, 2013
the smell is the sisal not the glue on the bottom. it will dissipate over time. jazmyn05 on Jun 10, 2013

I noted that you said it could be wiped clean only. Can it be professionally cleaned? shenders on Jan 18, 2013

Answer This Question

Yes this can be professionally cleaned. Vacuum the rug weekly, vacuuming the underside, too, if possible. Professional cleaners should only use a dry extraction process, not steam or shampoo, on the rug. Blot spills immediately with a clean towel.
