I love jute rugs – to me they are one of the most beautiful farmhouse rugs out there. My husband… not so much! But after reading a few reviews online, we decided on one for our living room, so that’s what we’re going to chat about today. I’ve been getting quite a few questions about where it came from and if what my opinion is after living with it for a while… so let’s dive in.

We bought THIS RUG – the NuLoom Chunky Jute Loop Rug from Amazon – back in April. I had read a ton of reviews on it, and the number one thing I saw over and over was that it was incredibly soft for a jute rug. And they were spot on. It’s such a comfortable rug underfoot…. which I would have never guessed in a million years from a jute rug. Usually they are stiff and scratchy and soft never enters your mind. But this one is. It’s so soft, in fact, that I’m ordering another for my bedroom.
The caramel tone of it isn’t too green or orange, it’s as perfect as a natural jute rug can get.
Then there’s the texture. Here’s a close up look at it (with the darkness adjusted) so you can really get the details of it. And can we just discuss that fringe? Hubba, hubba!
I also get a few questions about cleaning: Is it hard to keep clean? Not at all. It vacuums like all my others (which if I’m being honest probably isn’t often enough.) There’s a bit of shedding at first, but after a few vacuumings it gets better. It doesn’t show dirt, and as a girl living in the country, trust me when I tell you that it’s been thoroughly tested 🙂 We’ve had a couple of pet accidents which cleaned up easily with a damp cloth. Although I don’t allow my little grandsons to have any drinks on it, that’s just as much for keeping my furniture clean as it is the rug. It was always a rule around here, so no big adjustment. (Feel free to ask any other questions in the comments.)
It has become one of my favorite go-to farmhouse rugs, because you just can’t beat that texture, color & feel. Would I buy it again? Absolutely!
