Do not put this rug near water. I dropped water on it and the red ran all over the jute - what a disaster! Do not spend your money on this rug that you can only look - not walk on, spill on, clean, get wet - forget it! In a world wear people need to live in their environment - this is not for those people. It's show rug. Very sad, because it was beautiful to look at until it got wet! Do not purchase unless you buy something that says indoor-outdoor!
