This seagrass rug is satisfactory except for the binding which is crooked and wavy and sewn kind of crudely. It does have a very hand woven look. The binding is wrinkled in places. It doesn't look like the photo: the weave is much larger and I was disappointed because I have another in my hallway that has smaller weave (I wanted them to be similar - I knew they wouldn't be alike, but they are not at all alike except that they are both natural fiber rugs). I am keeping it though because for the price I probably couldn't do better. I can cover it somewhat with a coffee table - the rug has the desired effect of being rustic in my beach cottage.
