I bought this rug because I wanted a natural fabric with a tight pile and the colors of rust, green and gold to match my other rug. I have a large dog and I didn't want hair to collect around the edges as with a normal large textured jute rug. I was disappointing with this purchase and will be sending it back. There is much more black on the rug than you can see in the picture online and the green is almost non-existent. or it is so dark you can't really tell it from the black. Otherwise, it is a good value for a flat rug with this pattern if that is what you are looking for.
