I love the look of this rug. It adds loads of texture To a room. I was hoping the wool combination would make it comfortable to walk on, but not so. The chunky knot size calls for shoes or slippers.
Do not pay attention to the other negative reviews. This rug is amazing! It has transformed my room! So beautiful!
Great rug! If you want a nice thick woven rug then this is it! I haven't noticed any shedding. The chunky texture is great! And the ivory wool woven in keeps the room very light and bright!
Love this rug! It is just as cute in person as it is in the photos. Great quality! Especially for the price.
Love the color and quality! Great for beach/coastal/comfortable home. It is a little hard on bare feet but not enough to deter me from purchasing again. The wool in this rug is super soft!!!
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.
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
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.
I am very happy with this rug. I knew I wanted a contemporary-style rug and I also liked the beachy appearance of jute, but did not think I wanted a jute rug due to the difficulty of cleaning it and the potential for splinters. I really didn't think I would come across a rug that had the modern (and neutral) look I wanted and would also have a beachy feeling, but this rug has both! I like the texture, I like that it won't show dirt easily, I have had no problems whatsoever with shedding, in fact I don't have shedding at all (another review had shedding issues), and I simply think it looks great. The quality so far seems good, too - it is thick and solid and not flimsy. I do have a substantial - maybe 1/2 inch - felted pad under the rug as my apartment building requires. I also greatly appreciated the website's "see it in your room" link, and did use that. I feared the return policy/costs, as those are not spelled out sufficiently on the website, but am pleased to say I won't be retuning this rug. The price was amazing and the delivery was fast. Two thumbs up all around.
We love our rug, as pictured (in the close up picture). I thought it would a little more jute than white but more white; and didn't notice the tassle type material. BEAUTIFUL rug but a little rough to walk on, you can feel the wool knots. Not a rug to lay on, more for looks. Great for our living room!
Beautiful rug. Absolutely love it. The black lines in the jute attract attention but do not overwhelm.
Bought this rug for our master bedroom, which has a set of sliding patio doors that open to an upstairs deck, so a medium amount of traffic. I've only had it a few days, but was very pleasantly surprised at how heavy/chunky the rug's texture is, but at the same time, it is soft and quite comfortable to walk on, even with bare feet. I can feel the knots when walking on it, so it's not plush like a shag rug is, but the texture of the knots is soft, and not abrasive at all. The rug does not shed all that much, especially compared to other jute rugs and 100% wool rugs that I've purchased in the past. The colors are exactly as they appear in the pictures, and the construction of the rug seems very good; the stitching is tight, there are no gaps in the weaving, and the knots are uniform in appearance. This is a very attractive rug, and as usual, I'm quite happy with my purchase from Rugs USA!!
