This rug is still growing on me. I've never purchased a seagrass rug nor did I know what it would actually feel like until it arrived.. After reading many reviews and looking at the options, I wanted the sisal rug, but because I have 2 cats, customer service recommended I go with 100% seagrass. My cats are not to sure about the rug and will walk on it very gingerly. They do however like to chew on any loose "threads". I've had to trim it several times in order to deter them from damaging it. Hopefully, with a little scolding, they will get over that. Overall, the rug is not soft, but not uncomfortable either, just fine for my husband and I to walk on with bare feet. It is very easy to vacuum and looks good in my space. There is one place that looks as though it could become a hole at some point. The weave is very loose, but not loose enough to trim. I've tried pushing the threads back into place, but the grass is just too stiff. With this one exception, it seems to be fairly durable. I do hope I get many years out of it..
