I've had the rug for about one month now and I love it! I had been looking for a jute rug and was worried about it fraying or not feeling soft under foot. This rug put my worries at ease, it's soft to walk on and is holding up well. One corner did fray a little but it was a very simple fix, just use a needle and thread to simply sew the frayed edge back onto the rug. This is an easy and inexpensive fix should the rug ever fray again. I would highly recommend it to others wanting that natural woven rug look. I have a 100 lb dog and the rug is standing up to his running and jumping. I would recommend buying a rug pad to go beneath since on hardwood floors it can move a bit. Overall, it's a great rug and wonderful addition to my living room!
