This is a great, inexpensive, high traffic rug - particularly if you have kids or pets. We bought it for under our kitchen table and it looks great, despite being over half the cost of similar rugs we found in stores or online. I also like that the weave is tight and flat enough to allow us to move both chairs and our son's high chair over it with ease. Finally, it cleans up easily. NOTE: The color of the rug is lighter than in the picture, its the color of a traditional sisal rug - medium beige.
