I have been looking for a replacement sisel rug, and found everything I was looking for in this rug. The rug is exactly what others had described - great quality, and softer on the feet than most sisel rugs you see in the stores, especially at this price point. A few buyers mentioned a slight oder in their rug -- mine didn't have that problem and also laid out flat with the exception of one corner. A few books placed on the problem corner overnight solved the problem. The price, quality, look and speed with which it arrived all receive high marks! I am very pleased with my purchase.
