Though I do like the irregular "handmade" woven texture, it seems a little fragile and unlikely to wear well. I will keep it because the openness of the weave will enable it to breathe and not add excessive heat. I fully anticipate my wife having to use yarn to repair it occasionally, but the rustic weave should hide the repairs. Positives: Open Weave, Rustic "Handmade" Character, No Sheen. Negatives: Fragile, Overpriced.
