OK, after reading reviews, and re-reading, and debating... I finally ordered this rug. I'm SO glad I did! If you are considering it but worried about the bad reviews, don't worry! - Neither the woven fiber of the rug nor the cotton border are yellow. They are a perfect khaki beige. - The rug doesn't smell. I've had natural fiber rugs that smell, and this one doesn't. - Yes, the rug is curled up... and it has taken a while for the corners to flatten out. Putting a heavy object on them for a couple weeks helps. - The rug doesn't shed at all... at least mine doesn't. - Yes, furniture makes indentations in the rug. But I've never had a rug that doesn't show marks from heavy furniture. - There is a latex backing on the rug so no rug pad is needed. - The weave is very tight and low... easy to slide dining chairs around. And easy to fit under swinging doors that open into the room. (I live in a very old farmhouse, so there are doors in odd places, including opening into my dining room where I placed this rug.) I loved the rug so much, I ordered another one for our master bedroom. At this price, I could get a HUGE version of this rug that fits under and around our king-sized bed!
