Deeply Regret this Purchase
Starting with the understanding that this rug is VERY heavy in the 9x12 size, (making a return difficult and costly), I say run far, far away from this rug. First, the color could not be more "off" from that pictured online, at least in my intended use area. Lighting dramatically changes the hue and, in my entryway, this rug appeared nothing short of mustard yellow during the daylight. At night, the color was nice ... sorta close to that pictured. Then, there is the binding ... the rug is nicely bound on the lengths but, on the shorter ends, the rug is bound by literally folding it over on itself, thereby making the short ends extremely thick (actually, 1.25 inches thick to be exact). This presents an extreme trip hazard as well as making it difficult to pass a door over the rug if need be. The rest of the rug was very nearly an inch thick ... the nap height referenced in the item description refers to ONLY the nap ... NOT to the total height of the rug when the thick cotton backing and edge binding is added. So, if height is a factor in your application, this will definitely be too high. It was ridiculously high. Finally, the rug shed like crazy, making it impossible to vacuum without seizing up my vacuum beater bar (and there were so many fibers, it would not work to use just suction). I loved the look online and really, really wanted to love this rug ... it was unique and I would have loved it were it not for the awful color and crazy thick height ... why would anybody make a rug that is such a trip hazard!?Read More
Misleading rug dimensiions leads to a nightmare
This rug was purchased based on the fact that it was listed as having a 1/2" pile height. This was misleading, since the rug was actually thicker than 1/2", but there was nothing indicating that in the specifications of product. As a result, it could not clear a custom metal door and the door could not be altered so as to pass over the height of the rug. The door was measured prior to ordering, but since no other than the pile height was given, I ended up with a totally useless and expensive mess. The rug now resides in Mexico, where I paid extra to ship it, and given the nature of shipping things here, it makes it financially unfeasible to return this to OVERSTOCK.. Needless to say I am both disappointed and poorer because of this mess.Read More

Hello sumac, because this rug is made of hemp and jute, it will not be as soft as a fabric or wool rug. Thank you for shopping with us!
"Can you clarify the color of this rug? The description alternately refers to the color as "caramel" and "camel." Are there any shades of grey in the mix, or is it yellows/browns/creams? Thanks."
