mixed feelings

Just a few things that other buyers should be aware of: 1. The rug is labeled 100% jute. It is NOT sisal. 2. The overall hexagon shape featured in the rug's pattern is about 6 inches overall. For some reason I expected the weave to be smaller. I still like it, but it took me by surprise. 3. The color is slightly more "rose" than rust, but in looking at my computer screen and the rug, the color depicted by Overstock is pretty accurate. My dining room walls are an orange / coral and so I wish the color tones were a little more orange than red/ rose, but it still works. I am not sure how the rug is going to hold up in our dining room. I have a feeling my dog is going to shred this one. I just vacuumed it for the first time and learned that you need to vacuum it along with the weave so you don't pull out the knots or fray edges. I suspect it is going to have lots of loose pieces sticking out of it soon, BUT the pattern will help conceal. A few positives: I have it in our dining room. It looks great and it is going to hide food / stains significantly better than the neutral sisal rug we used to have in there. It also adds a lot of warmth and character to the space. About me: I have two small kids and a large dog so I was looking to buy a rug that I am not going to be completely upset about if it looks trashed in a few years. I think this was a good purchase overall. One comment about shipping: The outer layer of shipping plastic arrived with this weird greasy substance all over it. I have no idea what it was. Luckily, it came nowhere in contact with the rug which was wrapped in another layer of plastic.
