I like this rug better than I expected to, and I got it on sale so the price was great. It doesn't look like a "bathroom rug" and gives my bathroom a bit of sophistication. It looks like jute but it is synthetic and feels soft on the bottom of my feet. It is thin which is fine with me, and has a non-slip back. I got it in brown and the color is nice with lots of warm gold tones mixed with darker brown and a slight sheen. The only thing that I would change about this is a more polished edge finish, but that would probably put it at a higher price point. I wish I could get another one in a smaller size to put in front of a door in my living room.
