The entire rug is covered with hard plastic pokey thread ends, snips and loops. This would work on a porch for muddy boots. You could never use this rug where people would walk on it with sock-covered feet. You could never sit on it. it would hurt my cat's paws. I like the colors, and it looks tidy from a distance. Disappointed with that it is not really usable inside.
The smaller one I ordered was sewn with a more pliable thread. The thread in the 3x5 one is more like the plastic that is used to attach sales tags to garments in a store. Consider if you are willing to have that poking out of every inch of the rug before you buy it. Sewing with a sturdy fabric thread would have been a better choice for quality control.
