I was not sure what to expect when ordering. But this is an excellent rug. I'm sooooo happy with it. It comes with a rubber backing already on it. It's very attractive, a quality looking addition to my living space. It vacuums up really nice too. The only thing is the natural fibers have a subtle odor to them, in the beginning, but that is going away. I think I'm going to get some for the bedrooms and my office. I really love this rug that much. I'm so happy I took a chance on this purchase!
This rug is definitely sisal and jute. It is scratchy which doesn't bother me at all but my daughter whose room it went into was complaining that it is too scratchy. Not a rug to lay on or let a baby crawl around on. But my daughter(who is in college and home not that often) has a dog who threw up on it about 3 days after we put it in her room and I was like okay, here we go. BUT I blotted it and cleaned it up with a rug cleaner and you can't even see it. I like the rug, it isn't that scratchy, did not have any odor when we un packaged it. I would recommend it for sure!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
Love the rug! It is perfect for what I needed it for, which is under a dining table for a house near the beach. I is very easy to vacuum and spills clean up with ease. It traps the sand brought in by the kids and the dog plus at this price it can be replaced in a few years if it starts to look too grungy. It comes with a rubber backing so a pad is unnecessary and it lays nice and flat right from the start. Be advised that this is a fairly stiff sisal so you might not want to use it in a bedroom where you would be walking barefoot often, doesn't hurt but not as comfortable as soft sisal.

It looks very elegant and classic in my dining room. It lightened up the room a lot. I have dark wood table so this was perfect. The smell of the fabric is Not bad at all. It goes away after a couple of days. The only thing is that it's not a soft rug to walk on it but I guess sisal rugs fiber is that way.
I bought this rug over a year ago. It is under my dining room table. It looks great and is stain resistant, however the edges roll up all the time. I have to periodically iron them down to make it look better. I have several other rugs that never do this..dissapointed.
This rug came with a black oil stain on the cotton edging and it was also ripped. The quality was a bit cheap. Would not buy this one again. On a positive note... customer service at Overstock was wonderful to deal with gave me a credit and apologized. Would definitely buy from Overstock again.
I ordered this rug to replace a smaller one under my dining room table. The rug has a rubber backing, which is nice. It doesn't slide around. If you wanted a softer base, you might want a pad underneath. The rug is very "stringy". There are lots and lots of loose ends and mine came with some areas where the sisal seems worn through- not quite a hole, but almost. I had to trim around the border to make it look like it wasn't falling apart. There are also some very dark bits woven into the sisal that look sort of like stains. I almost returned it but for the hassle.
That being said, once trimmed, it looks good unless closely examined. It seems to clean-up easily, at least so far, and doesn't really show crumbs or dirt. My chairs don't catch on it and it serves its purpose well. I may be being overly critical because for me, at least, this was a pretty big investment.
Beautiful rug. Looks just like the picture in terms of color. I put this area rug in my living room and put a cowhide rug over it. Then the coffee table over the cowhide and it looks awesome. Really pulled the whole living room together. Before the cowhide rug seemed to be floating in my living room. Now it looks great with the addition of this rug!
How can these rugs be cleaned when vacuuming doesn't get it clean anymore?cathyjg on Feb 8, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cathyjg, we appreciate your inquiry. Spot clean spills with a clean slightly damp sponge or rag. Professional cleaning is recommended. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 8, 2014
Hello geebeewhy, we appreciate your inquiry. The backing should not stick to your wood floors, but the best way to ensure that would be to use a rug pad which will aid in keeping the rug in place without sticking. Item #11996894 may be of interest to you. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 3, 2014
we have sealed 100-year old + original wood floors and have not had a problem with the backing sticking to the floors. We did not use an additional rug pad or anything. In fact, it definitely protects the floors much better than being uncovered.nicole18503 on Feb 5, 2014
Hello tk2013, Actually, this is a latex-backed rug and they can adhere to a laminate or vinyl floor surface leaving a sticky residue. Therefore, we recommend using a dense felt pad beneath rubber-or latex-backed rugs as well as beneath any nonnatural fiber rug to allow air to circulate between rug and the laminate flooring. Thank you for your inquiry and for shopping with us.
