Tightly woven, smooth polyester fabric with nonslip sponge rubber backing looks neat and stays put. Pretty pine bough motif won't hold dirt or show stains. Meets flame-retardant hearth rug standards. Also comfortable in front of the sink. Made in USA.
Comments about Product: This is described as a rug but in reality is a rubber mat. It does not lend itself well to placement in front of a fireplace or woodstove. It seems durable and might work well in front of the kitchen sink but I will return it and purchase a hearth RUG elsewhere.
Comments about Product: I returned this rug - it is basically a giant rubber mousepad with a design printed on it and it reeked of rubber, there is NO way I could have tolerated it in the house anywhere and it cost too much and looked way too cheap to put it outside anywhere. Very disappointed in the appearance, quality and smell of this item.
Comments about Product: From the description I expected a woven rug backed with foam, but really it's just screen printed on top of the foam. Seems like it should be a door mat, not a rug for a living room.
Comments about Product: Disappointed. This rug is not "tightly woven" or a "fabric". It is a polyester mat. Not at all like the other woven fabric rugs of the same print (which are wonderful). Beware. This is a cheap imitation. Bummer.
Comments about Product: This is a fire-resistant "rug" for the front of your fireplace. It looked pretty in the catalog but the colors are washed-out looking and the fabric is a spongy mat-type rather than a rug per-se. It may be fire-resistant, which is good, but it does not look very nice in front of a fireplace.
Comments about Product: We were looking for a flame retardant rug for our living room wood stove and were excited when we found this one. Unfortunately we ended up putting it away. The rug did get stained when ashes fell on it but that wasn't the main problem. The main problem was that it kept smelling of petroleum. In a living room, that's a no-no. We just couldn't stand the smell. It's better to put a metal sheet in front of the stove.
