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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pesos Quality has changed-Not for the better
Was disappointed to see the new quality standard for this rug. Just purchased a replacement for the kitchen, and the quality is not the same. We have other rugs for this style in the bathrooms and they have held up very well, with excellent quality. The new difference when comparing the older model to the new. The yarn or thread count per inch is much LOWER today than in the past. The rug is not as thick or firm. If you rub your hand over the top of the yarn, you can see the backing foam very clearly. The older rugs did not do this. The edge border is also much thinner today. I understand manufacturing costs go up every year, but, I would prefer they add cost to the rug and keep the prior quality standard. I am sure many people would agree, especially if you have an older model in your home. The difference in quality is very apparent. Been shopping at JCP for 25+ years, but, hope they are not going down that path with cheap prices and cheap quality. Their reputation is better than that. There are big box stores that specialize in offering cheap goods for folks that want them. I prefer to pay more as fair price but get the quality we have normally seen over the years with JCP. The new rug is serviceable, but, do not expect it to hold up as durable over time due to the thinness of the yarn as currently used. Tried to take pictures of the old vs new style, but, hard to show the difference with a photo.

I bought two of these rugs in New Orleans Red in March of 2015, and they have turned out to be the poorest of quality. Right from the first DELICATE washing, the backing was shedding into the yarn of the face, leaving what appears to be extremely heavy dandruff throughout the rug, which is impossible to shake, brush, or vacuum out, ruining the appearance. Additionally, the fibers in the yarn work loose and twist through every bit of lint so that only kneeling down and pulling it out bit by bit is the solution. Unless you plan to buy this rug in the Cream color, I would urge you NOT to buy this one.

Received 2 (black) circa 07/29/16. Within 2 weeks, the serged edges began separting from the body of the rug, in multiple locations; including to the point that one entire edge was no longer attached. Returned to the store yesterday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKNEON54 LOVE THESE RUGS!
I HAVE SEVERAL OF THESE RUGS AND HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM. WHAT I LOVE THE BEST, IS THAT YOU CAN THROW THEM IN YOUR WASHING MACHINE IF THE SIZE IS NOT TOO BIG. LOVE THE LINEN COLOR, BUT THE OTHER COLORS I HAVE PURCHASED ALSO. GREAT RUG AND WEARS WELL. I HAVE ONE THAT IS AT LEAST 10 YEARS OLD AND STILL LOOKS NEW.....THANKS JCP!!!!
WOULD LOVE TO SEE A TEAL OR AQUA COLOR!
