Rated 5 out of 5 by LovingMyHome Love everything about this item
I purchased the 8'x10" area rug together with 4 of the runners to go down my long hallway. Love the feel of the pile, colors and even the backing. No pad necessary. I was able to get everything on sale, which was also great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CZGator Kartoum Synthetic rug combines easy care, affordability and great looks
I had been seeking a reasonably priced. fully synthetic area rug with an Oriental pattern for several months and had found some I liked, but later found the backing was typically jute, which is organic and needs special care. As a pet owner, I wanted something that looked good and was easy to clean; synthetic fibers are hard to stain. The backing on this rug is latex, which is washable and does not slip on the floor. I was also looking for a color scheme of blues, creams and muted greens and finally found it in the Blue Kartoum Rug. Best of all, it was on sale! I ordered a 5 x 8 area rug and a matching smaller one. When it arrived, I was somewhat dismayed that the brown was so prominent and the blue less so. In the photo, it appears to have a really wide blue border, but in the sizes I got, it is not as wide and the cream that edges the rug minimizes it more. As I liked the other features of the rug I decided to keep it for a few days and see if it grew on me-it did. Actually, the dark pattern is not all brown, but dark green with dark beige patterns intermixed. The blue band is more of a teal with green, off white and tan designs scattered throughout. Interestingly, there is also a paler, medium blue design interspersed on the off white background in the middle of the rug and that helps to balance the brown. It is really an interesting pattern and it will certain help to disguise any dirt. As for being easy care, one of my cats decided to christen it with its breakfast, I wiped it up and squirted some Res*lve type rug cleaner on it and pouf, it was gone! The rug can be washed in a washing machine if you have a smaller size or a professional sized washer. When mine needs it, I plan to drag it out on the deck, blast it with the hose and some soap, then hang it out to dry. It's not super thick so it should be easy to do. (The 5 x 8 weighs 15 lbs.) The weave is dense, and it is soft underfoot; the way the pattern blends smoothly together makes it looks like a much more expensive rug. However, if you want a super thick pile this will not be up to your standards, although you could get a pad to increase the thickness. All in all, I feel like this rug is quite a bargain! (I did omit one star because I wish there had been a bit more blue and less brown. What can I say, I love blue!)
