I started to unroll this rug and the odor from it was so vile that it almost made me sick. It smelled like dirty wet socks and the smell was so strong that it permiated my entire home. This is the second rug that I have purchased from Overstock that I have had to return due to an overwhelmingly disgusting odor. The first one smelled like mildue. Needless to say, this will be the last rug that I purchase from them.
