Ordered this chunky thick jute rug for my bath! It meets everything in the description of it! Lovely dark brown in color and feels ok under foot, for a natural jute material! I was somewhat concerned about getting this for the bath, because of getting water on it, but I decided it looked so great, it was worth the try! I just simply throw a thick towel on to the rug, to step out on to absorb the water! No problems at all! This rug also has very nice fringe on the two long ends! No sign of anything coming untied or loose! The fringe is actually part of the weaving of the rug and is tied off well! You do need to shake it well, to loosen up and remove loose jute "trash"! Not really trash but something gritty from the jute being natural! Just shake it and no problems! I think this is how it would be cleaned, Nothing else would show on this rug! You will not regret purchasing this rug, if natural jute is what you are looking for! This bath has sculpted Venetian plaster walls in a natural beige, brown, little bit of orange rubbed on and little green rubbed on! This creates a real vintage Italian, beachy look in the bath!! Rug over the light wood floors, looks fantastic! This is a fairly large rug! Oh, I do have a lightweight pad underneath, to prevent slippage on the wood floor! Arrived on schedule and in perfect condition! Highly recommend buying this rug! You will not regret it!
Pretty in my living room. The room doesn't get much use so I can not say how durable it is, but it looks wonderful. Based upon the feel and my experience with jute in the past, I think it should wear pretty well. These rugs do have a tendency to shed fiber and develop some loose strands but a snip with the scissors or a spot of crazy glue usually fixes the problem. Also, I have read that many people sew frayed areas with beige upholstery thread when issues arise to keep them looking nice. These type of rugs are not exactly low maintenance as compared to synthetic fibers or berber, but they are very attractive giving rooms a warm, rustic feel. So, if you are ok with a pull or two and needing to run the vacuum periodically, you should be fine. I don't mind because these rugs are so attractive. Some reviewers remarked about the "jute" smell that many of these natural fiber rugs often have when they arrive. My rug did have that distinctive funky jute smell but it went away after a few days. I also recommend vacuuming it on both sides without the beater every day for a few days in order to remove the sediment or "dirt" as some reviewers have mentioned. It's natural with jute to have a bit of dusty residue when new, but in time this will go away if vacuumed or shaken outside. I believe this rug is one of the nicer looking jute rugs in terms of weave, color and thickness. I have several and this is my favorite in terms of visual appeal. It also works well with many color schemes as it is neither too cool or warm in tone.
