I bought 2 of these rugs for my open concept home. One for the living room and one for the dining room. They are exactly what i wanted and although they aren’t very soft, they are rugged and great for the rustic modern look i’m going for. I have 2 big dogs and a husband that is hard on floors and rugs. I looked for similiar rugs and did not find any at this price point that could hold a candle to these.
We bought the 8’6” x 12’ jute rug. It goes under our king bed and i have a bench coming to put at the end of the bed. It is hand made so not perfectly straight edges but the rug is somewhat pliable where it can be stretched into a straighter line. I’ve included a picture with the the overhead light on and ambient lighting for anyone trying to judge color. We did practically break our back’s to get it under the bed only to realize the pretty side was down and the not so pretty side was up so after some bickering with the husband we flipped the right side up and it’s perfect. So be sure you have it laid out properly if you’re trying to slide it under a bed without moving the bed.
The rug smells moldy when you get it. I read that it goes away after a couple days however. Within 15 minutes of unrolling the rug, my nose began to tingle like it never has before and my eyes felt a burn. Do not think of purchasing this rug if you have hay fever. I had to take claritin to get rid of the symptoms. When i rolled it back up to put in its original package (obviously i’m returning it), it left an unbelievable amount of dust and dirt. The photo shows what the rug dropped after laying on my floor for just an hour. I didn’t give it 1 star because it is a beautiful, richly textured, cost-efficient rug that brought the piano area together nicely. If i wasn’t allergic to it, i would keep it.
- ♦️♦️ WOW! Fabulous rugs!! ♦️♦️
- Looks fantastic and quality seems excellent for this price.
- In LOVE with this rug!
I’ve had this about a month and it’s seen serious action. It sits in the entry of our sliding glass door to the back yard. It hides mud and dirt while still looking pretty. My dogs love to sleep on it and one of them sheds like mad – it also hides the dog hair. My roomba goes right over it with no problems and takes care of daily cleaning. On muddy days, i let it dry a little and then broomed it off. I love the way it looks, it durability so far, and how easy it is to take care of.
I purchased it for under my diningroom table. Wouldn’t purchase for livingroom to lay around on due to the firmness, but great for under diningroom tables or beds. It adds great texture and really brings the room together. The delivery was right on time and the price was so reasonable for such a well made product.

I paid $100 after a great discount at fred meyer for a 5×7 rug. It was softer than this one but more loosely woven so it didn’t hold its shape very well. I only paid $23 more for this one and not only is it larger but it is much better quality. I admit to not liking to walk on it without shoes (kinda hurts my feet) but it’s exactly what i was expecting. I have it over carpet and haven’t noticed the dust that was mentioned in other reviews.
It is natural, meaning it is not lush and soft and fuzzy under feet. That being said, it is still very tolerable and soft for being a natural rug. It is not scratchy or like walking on sticks. I have had guests comment that it felt good under their feet which i found strange. I can see where it can be like that. Like going barefoot outside. Anyhow, it is true to color, has maintained its shape, vacuums with or without beater bars with my shark just fine. I have lifted this rug as it sits on a grippy pad and have not found it to be filled with dust or dirt.
I can’t say enough about how much we love this rug. We have hardwood floors and aren’t fans of bacteria-grabbing carpet, so if we do get any floor covering, it’s always made of jute. And not all jute rugs are created equal. But this one is soft and well made, perfect for my husband’s office. Looking to order a 2nd one for the kids room, too.
Product arrived promptly, great quality, and beautiful. It does have a strong ‘dirt’ smell. I’m hoping that will fade with time. This rug is perfect for layering a smaller rug on top.
8 not 6×9 as advertisedi only realized this when it didn’t provide the coverage i expectedlittle stiff but good chunky weave. Hopefully it will get softer with usesecond pic shows 4. 5′ short of being 9′ longthose few inches do make a difference.
I have now bought five of them in various sizes. I bought four for my home, and one for the relaxation room that i designed for my employer. The look and feel is fantastic.They lay flat without bunching up (even with 5 dogs) and, in my opinion, feel amazing when barefoot. My kids even said it feels like a little foot massage when they walk on it.
Beautiful and softer than expected. I only wish that i could get the 9×12 size but sadly they won’t ship it to hawaii. It’s a natural fiber rug, so there are some fibers and stuff that fall out but it’s no big deal if you clean your floors regularly. I read a lot of negative comments about dirt in this rug, but it’s a large knobby weave, so i really believe it’s probably just dirt falling off of people’s shoes through the cracks in the rug. Your average carpet just hides all that crap way down in the tufts (gross). I don’t believe it needs a rug pad.
I have purchased several jute rugs for our home, but never from amazon. This one arrived in perfect condition, and looks great. It does have an earthy smell, but this has happened with all of the jute rugs i’ve purchased, and usually goes away in a couple weeks. The rug does shed a bit, but this happened with my knee rugs at first as well, and unlike the other jute rugs i’ve purchased this one wasn’t filled with sand, which was a plus.
Purchased a 6×9 jute rug to go under my rustic/barnwood dining table. Was packaged nicely but did have a slight smell to it as some reviewers mentioned. Unrolled and left in the garage overnight, not due to smell but because the pad i ordered to go underneath it didn’t arrive until today. I am very pleased with the look and quality of the rug, although both ends had what appeared to be a seam or a dark line in it, as shown in one of the photos. Had that not been present, i’d have given 5 stars. Overall, very happy with purchase and would buy again. Even my dog is happy with it.
It’s worth mentioning that the rug may not be the exact size it’s sold as. Ours is about 3 inches shy of 3×5. Other than that we absolutely love the rug. It goes perfectly with the decor in our home.
Long 6 inch fringe on the ends. The rug itself seems fine, but it is not as pictured/described because of the odd fringe. Deciding wether to return it now or see if it grows on me. The seagrass rope fringe is just long and odd.
All i have to say is that it’s only 40 frigging dollars. No, you probably won’t be cuddling up on this in front of the fire but it looks good, fits the space and for normal use you would never know that it’s plant fiber/jute. Bout about 6 months ago and it seems to get better with age and regular vacuuming.
Best thing about these jute rugs is that the dirt sifts through them. I use this for a large door mat inside the door to my garden. Every week i pick it up and vacuum underneath, and it’s amazing how much dirt it traps.
Stop looking and buy this rug. Very similar to what you’d find at pottery barn for 10 times more. The perfect blend of colors make it very versatile as it will enhance any decor/color scheme and will instantly add warmth and depth to complete the look of a room. With the wide range of sizes offered at very reasonable prices, i was able to buy one for our guest bathroom (3×5) and another (8×10) for our master bedroom. They are excellent quality, very thick and sturdy, reversible for double wear, not too rough under foot, and the best part is the rich color. Exactly the look i was going for. The bonus is they were both packaged well and arrived very fast as promised with prime 2-day shipping (even in the midst of the holiday rush) i will *definitely* buy more rugs manufactured by iron gate.
Looked nice online, but in reality it seems to ‘catch’ anything and pull the loops out. We ordered this one and the same in a different size. Returned both as it did not work for us, but may work for others. Just understand this think is thick and you might catch yourself tripping over it. Will definitely need floor grippers on a slick floor.
Love the look of this rug against my dark wood floors. This rug is really well made. However i did read the reviews so opened the package outside and left it out there for 2 days (it needed every minute). The smell is no longer there. And there is no dirt and debris from the rug itself as some others mentioned. I actually purchased this for under the dining table but i figured since i was still looking for a living room rug to try this rug in there. . Aaaaaaand i’m loving the look. Not only is the look super cute it’s actually comfortable to walk on without shoes. All around this was a great buy.Do yourself a favor and just buy it.
Wonderful natural color and very well made. Holds its shape well and has some some nice detail around the edges. I actually think it looks better in person than in the photo. Note that you absolutely have to install a non slip mat under this if you are putting it down on a hard surface otherwise it will slip around. It would also harm hardwood floors if placed directly onto them as the natural material is somewhat abrasive.
Cheaper than a lot of seagrass/jute rugs i saw but yet it’s thick (to me) and it hasn’t come apart/shred yet after 2. Got a lot of compliments and it goes very well with my cream couch. I didn’t use a liner underneath since my heavy coffee table is able to hold it in place.
