I've had this rug for about 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love it! I actually think I love it more every time I walk in the room. The texture is exactly what I was looking for, and it is much softer than I was expecting as I know most braided rugs are on the rougher side. This rug is super soft! I haven't noticed any shedding yet, although it isn't in a high traffic area. It does have a pretty distinct smell right away, but once you lay it out and let it air it goes away after a while. Nothing negative to say about this rug - love the warm, natural color of it and it is exactly what I was looking for to finish off our baby girl's nursery! Best part is that the texture of it hides EVERYTHING, which is perfect with this rug being in a nursery and also having a large shedding dog! Awesome rug.
good service and good
quality...very satisfied so
far..although product is still new.
This rug looks darling in my guest room/playroom! Love the neutral/beachy look. I did not experience the shedding other reviewers have mentioned. What I am experiencing is a very "earthy" smell. I'm keeping the windows open continuously and hope that it goes away. Also, I thought I'd do my Pilates in this room...the knots in the rug are way too uncomfortable for this. It doesn't bother me to walk on it but you wouldn't want to lay on it.
This rug is beautifully made but unfortunately not the seafoam color pictured, there is no green in it whatsoever and it is much darker in person. I ordered mine directly from Surya. It is very well made though and actually pretty soft for being a wool rug! Not too much shedding either. If you are wanting a seafoam or minty color though do not order.
I was pleasantly surprised how heavy this rug is, which was great for me in the area where I've placed it. While the quality seems to be very good, I will say that there are a few aspects about this style to consider before purchasing:
#1 - It is VERY nubby. You can definitely feel the large fat loops of wool on the bottoms of your feet when you walk on it, so I would not classify this rug as "soft and comfy" underfoot. But that isn't a bad thing - just depends on what you expect as far as the comfort of the pile.
#2 - By nature of the very thick and nubby texture it isn't the best choice if you need to move chairs with legs on it often - such as a dining chair. I am using it in an area where I have a writing desk. I use a 4-legged chair there and I do have to slightly lift up the chair in order to move it around otherwise it kind of gets hung up due to the nubby texture. So be aware of this fact.
#3 - Vacuuming it ... you DO NOT want to use the beater brush option on your vacuum cleaner, as the very thin wispy white threads that make up all the tufts that proliferate this rug will likely get pulled out over time. They are not strongly knotted onto the rug. Case in point: when I received this rug it was tightly rolled up and had wide tape holding it together at the top, middle and bottom - clear packing tape. But when trying to remove the tape it was pulling out some of the white threads. I found that the faster you pulled off the tape, the less threads would be stuck to the tape. This didn't cause any noticeable loss in quality, however proved to me that these threads would be very vulnerable to a beater bar when vacuuming.
#4 - Dirt, crumbs and such will probably be a bit harder to suction out of this rug due to the various pile heights within the rug - there are big fat "nubs" of wool, long white tufts and big fat twists of jute. So...I wouldn't recommend this rug for a kids room or eating area.
Hope this review proves helpful. And again - it is a lovely rug and even nicer in person than the photos show. And the colors on my computer monitor proved to be the same as the rug I received.
Rug was a great buy. The
quality is very good for the
price. We ordered the blue
and the color was perfect.
Very happy with our purchase! The red color is rich, the rug is soft and thick.
This rug looks great in my living room. It appears to be more white/ cream, than the jute showing through. Doesn't shed as much as I thought it would. Definitely get a pad to go underneath
Nice rug, true to color.
Good, basic quality for a room
where you don't want something
Great quality rug. Only thing is with teal color everything shows on the rug. We like the quality.
We had to return it because I chose the wrong color but the rug is beautiful. Very thick and well made.
I love this Rug.
The design is magnificent.
The hue and texture are
similar to the picture of the
