by proudgrandmaSTL Terrible quality! Backing crumbles on first & every wash!
JCP should go back to the company that supplied their throw rugs 5+ years ago - those lasted for several years with no problems! Current supplier makes UNACCEPTABLE QUALITY throw rugs. After one washing (cold water, gentle cycle, fluff/dry low heat, then air dry), the white rubber/paper[?] backing crumbled leaving white crumbs all over inside my clothes dryer AND all over the front of the rug AND my clothes when handling the rugs! What a mess! This happened to 20"x34" rugs and 2'x5' runners. Washed again 3 weeks later, same process ... same mess! See attached photo for sample of crumbs [on tape on black paper for easier viewing] that have to be removed with sticky tape.
I have been buying throw rugs at JCP for 15+ years; not anymore as they no longer sell quality throw rugs.

by IdahoAnnie Great color for my decor............
I purchased 5 of these area rugs from JC Penney in 2008.....we have moved, and although the area rugs are still in good shape, we have moved them to the RV, and bought new for the new, smaller, house (downsizing - ugh!). I was so pleased to see they still had the 'antique linen' color - and, manufactured by the same company as 6 years ago. The rugs look wonderful! I would recommend these specific area rugs to anyone. They wash well (please read the manufacturers suggestions, and they will last a very long time), provide comfort to the feet in the night time, AND look good. Thanks JC Penney!

by BlueberryGal Just What I Needed
So far the rug is just what I needed. I love the color as it is just a great match to the color scheme in my room. I haven't washed it yet. I do vac/sweep/shake it out. No fibers have come loose or shedded loose. It does a great job of collecting dog hairs so I don't have them scattered elsewhere in the house. Dog loves to lay on it. I really liked how quickly it was delivered to my home.

This area rug is great value for the price JC Penney charged. The color is beautiful and it fits in well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kitty4824 Antique Linen color washable area rugs
For the sale price these are good rugs, especially. I chose Antique Linen color and was a bit disappointed as the border really doesn't show up as pictured. The rug appears to be pretty much one color or tonal, but for my purposes this is OK. They are a bit thinner than I had hoped as well; I hope they wash well. Again, for the sale price these seem to be good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rider A great rug, but smelled at first
This rug is pretty, is soft underfoot (despite its light weight) and is attractive. Plus, it is made of nylon, with a latex rubber backing--which is rare, and nice. Those are the high points. The only detraction is that it arrived with a toxic chemical smell in it. We washed it thoroughly with a bio-friendly soap, rinsed it thoroughly, aired it out in the sun for half a week, put baking soda and coffee grounds on it, then after a few more days vacuumed it. And now the smell is barely noticeable. So, this is a tip for anyone else who doesn't want to have to tolerate a strong chemical smell indoors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dawn Love the color
Unfortunately, I returned the rug. The first one purchased was put down and regular carpet tape used. Unfortunately, when trying to take it up the backing began coming off the rug. I, therefore, just kept it.
Loved the color... Would reorder this item if needed.
