After using this bamboo area rug, I have given away all my old carpets because in tropical climate a carpet on the floor gives me a very hot feeling around the house and carpets are very diificult to maintain in terms of hidden mites. dust and dirt.
Strong points: Bamboo rugs are ecological friendly because they are not like hardwood which takes ages to grow. Bamboo only takes a year to reach the height of more than ten feet or more. Hence savng our forests too. The thoughtful manufacturer have stuck a non slip backing at the back of the bamboo rug to keep the rug in place on the floor. The surface is hand-sanded to give the it a smooth and fine finishings. The best thing is, to clean the bamboo rug is super easy as compared to carpets. You just need to use a damp cloth or a mop to mop the surface.
Weak point: The colour do fades away after continous use.
