Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SuefromMass I wish I had read the reviews and stopped there..
I purchased three of these rugs as hall runners. I was a little disappointed by the fringe at the ends as they were ragged in an unattractive way. I had to tape and trim the fringe. A pain. Then I encountered a real problem which was that the rug pile height is too high to allow a standard door to open. I moved the rugs to other areas of our home. They only proved to be a constant source of irritation because they shed a ridiculous and unacceptable amount of the fibers from which they are made. They create a ton of creepy dust bunnies, choke the vacuum, and ruin socks and spandex. It has a nice blonde look (except for the sloppy fringe) but could only be used in a room that is actually never used or to stage a home sale. Do not buy it for normal household use

I am so happy with this purchase! Of course, I was nervous about ordering a rug site unseen, but it has exceeded my expectations. I had previously ordered another braided jute rug from another company because it was less money. I ended up returning it because the quality was awful. I was concerned that I would also be disappointed with this rug, but that is not the case.
The color is warm and it is soft (as far as jute rugs go)
We ordered the 9'6" x 13' and we have had no problems at all with dirt or shedding as other reviewers have mentioned.
If you are looking for a great quality jute rug you can not beat this for the price.

Outstanding. I ordered this rug in Oct. and received it in Jan because of backorderd. I understand now why. Rug is beautiful!!!!! It was well worth the wait. This rug is unbelievable for the price. It is so big and we had quite a large room for it. Just made the room look so much more warm and inviting. It is really thick and very expensive looking. I have looked at a lot of rugs and rugs close to this have been more then twice the price. I did take the advise of other reviews and vacumed the rug on both side extensively before I put it down. There was little of no shedding after the first day. Highly recomment this rug and Home Decorators were fabulous to work with through the backorder.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by guitargirl This rug SHEDS!!!!
This rug is just beautiful. It is exactly as photographed. The weave is large and the rug is very soft under your feet. It is a real bargain compared to other similar braided jute rugs I have seen online and in stores. Okay, here is the down side. This gorgeous rug sheds soooo bad. My hard wood floors looked like I had a pack of golden retreivers running loose in my house (as it resembles blond coarse hairs). I had to vaccum every day. After 3 weeks, I decided to return my beautiful rug. I was heartbroken. If you MUST have this rug, place it in a low traffic area like a formal dining room. Oh! It was also FULL of dirt. When I rolled it up for return, the floor was covered in dirt. Gross!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by macpac Unfotunately, it unravels
I bought this for the first time a few years ago and it was years before it started to unravel. I thought it unraveled related to our 2 dogs not because of quality. I bought a replacement last June because I love the look! This time it started to unravel in a couple months....I will not be buying a third!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pvprc11 I love my new rug!!
This jute rug is awesome! I have been searching and searching for the best quality and price and found it on home decorators. I also purchased the 7x9. Both pieces are in my kitchen. The 3x5 looks longer than 5 feet , but I do not mind. I had to purchase a rug pad for this size. The look is very high end! The quality of the braided look is very good. Besides my dog trying to eat the fringe part, and a bit of shedding of the jute - this rug was a great purchase. I had my eyes on this rug for about a month - and after much research - I found this one to be the best buy. I am very pleased. The shipping took about one week. The larger rug was a bit "greased" from the shipping travel...but I did not mind one bit.

I ordered a 7x9 version of this rug at the end of December and it was slated to ship at the end of January. After several reschedules, it finally arrived March 3 (a bit to my chagrin), but I'm very pleased with it. It was wrapped professionally and in great condition. The rug is soft for jute. It actually has a bit more variation in the color than what is shown in the photo, but I actually like that better. I've only had it down for a day, so no comments yet on durability, etc. But I'm considering ordering a smaller one for another area of the same room.

Resembles the photo but when I put the runner in my kitchen, I had to step up onto it and found it was easy to trip on. It was that thick. Then I started thinking that my cats would catch their claws on the knots and get stuck.
I sent it back but it was so heavy that shipping cost me almost as much as the rug. I lost money on this rug. Home Decorators should have emphasized the thickness in its description, or better yet, just said it was a novelty product with a look but not good for everyday use.
