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.
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.
We first selected a rug from a well known pricier retailer; however, our selection ended up on back order. We needed another option fast for our model units and found this rug. Lucky for us, we like this option better than our original selection and have decided to make this our standard. Not only is it not on back order, it is well made and much less costly.
I love this Rug. The design is magnificent. The hue and texture are similar to the picture of the product.
I like the rug. It is a little lighter than I expected and more shaggy looking than the photos, but still a good quality rug. There is no jute backing covering the reverse side. It is plush but also bumpy to walk on. Be sure to use a rugpad to keep it in place.
I love this rug. The colors were exactly what I had expected. It's thick and looks fabulous in my living room. It is very well made and should last for years.
Rug was a great buy. The quality is very good for the price. We ordered the blue and the color was perfect.
not exactly what I expected but I honestly love it. it’s beautiful and it fits my space perfectly. the only reason I docked a star is because of the shedding.. I sat down and got it all over my pants. other than that it’s great!
The green matched our living room perfectly. Carpet is thick & well made. I would definitely recommend & perhaps buy another in a different color for another room in our house.
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!!
