While this says it has a cotton canvas backing it does not. Fabric(?) backing is very thin, somewhat transparent . I have other rugs I have ordered online with the true canvas backing and others with the latex backing which seem to be a little bit better quality than this rug. You will absolutely need a rug pad for this. Also, it does shed a bit at first but there was no odor. Time will tell how long this will last....
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Border is more of a wine color rather than the browninsh red shown
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Backing is NOT canvas as stated but rather a very flimsy type of fabric, not sure what it is. Other than this, the rug is average quality.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Backing is not as described.
