I got this rug for my laundry room that is also an entry way from the garage to the kitchen. It lies in front of my front loading washer and dryer. It looks nice and traps dirt from outside and also hides it well. It is well made and I can tell it will hold up for a long time. The backing is a rubbery type of backing. I have noticed it gets askew with foot traffic, but it stays better than a rug that did not have a backing and it does not require a rug pad, which is a plus. It is not a soft rug, but is better for an entry way where you want to trap dirt. I do not agree with a previous review that said not to get this rug if you have children. I have a 2 y/o and a 4 y/o and they both walk on it just fine. It felt a little 'scratchy' to them at first because we have not ever had a natural sisal or jute type of rug. It does not hurt to walk on it and I think it has even softened a bit since we have had it (approximately one month). Overall this is a nice product and it is well worth the money.
