I saw the braided rug at P.B. and knew Overstock wouldn't let me down. I live in Colorado so it always takes 8-10 days for me to get anything (from anywhere). I couldn't wait for this rug!!! Unfortunately a braid right down the middle was unraveled and I had to send it back. I won't reorder it, even though it's gorgeous and soft, because I just know now that it will only take one dog nail to unravel another one. It's not a tight braid like a country braided rug. It's exactly like a sweater. SO SOFT.
