we have a small rug business, selling only handknotted rugs. we always have some of these rug pads & cut them to size when necessary for our customers. we also use them on all of the rugs in our home. they work great, even under small rugs---our cats run across many of our rugs & they never slip. they are not over-padded yet provide a bit of cushioning. the price is approx. 1/2 what it would cost in a retail store.
