We have been using this rug in our weekend home for about 4 months. It looks exactly like the photo and feels nice. However, it has come unwoven in two places already and it's only used about 10 days a month. I would recommend for a dining room or room that is not used often. However, for high traffic or frequently used rooms I recommend going another direction.
I initially ordered a different natural/jute rug but that one ended up outside on the lanai. This rug looked like a much more expensive rug that I almost paid 3x as much for and it had the "beachy" theme I was going for in my decor. It appears well-made and I love the blue banded accent. It really gives the rug an expensive look. The rug is a little over 1/4 inch thick and is very soft. I love it!
