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.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
