I bought this rug for my family room. At first I hesitated since it looked so much like a rag rug and I wanted something a little sturdier. However it is so inexpensive and looked okay in the pictures. I was so pleasantly surprised when the rug arrived. The colors are so beautiful and complement each other. It resembles a sophisticated version of a rag rug. The blend of cotton and jute work well to give a soft feel underfoot. This is my third rug from this merchant and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
