I bought 3 of these and have ordered one more. The quality is better than described; they are very well and tightly woven; the fringe is "real" and thick and sewn on beautifully; they are super soft and very thick, which is unusual in rag rug products. The thickness does not hinder using them as placemats, because they are so tightly woven that there are no ridges or bumps. I bought the Seabreeze Design and the colors of blue and green are just as seen on my computer screen. For under $6.00/each, I KNOW I received a great bargain!!
