We like this rug, the color is exactly what we wanted for our beach home office. It has a tight weave and lays flat, does not creep or crawl. It arrived well packaged and in shorter time than indicated. It does, however, have a distinct odor. Hard to determine just what it is, textile chemical, or warehoused in an older building; or transported in the hold of a ship ?? not sure, and the odor has lessened over time. We plan to put it out in the good weather tomorrow and let the ocean breeze work its magic ! All in all we do like this rug.
