We were skeptical first because we wanted hand-knotted rug for our stairs, but we were unable to find the exact size so we opted to try machine made. This turned out to be best option. The rug is very plush and soft for use on the stairs. We did not have to use any padding under the rug. We do not have any pets, but our 1 and 2 year old grand kids love to go up and down stairs and we do need to worry about them getting hurt if they slip. The price was great and the rug was shipped within 2 days of the order. It was well packaged and the customer service of Overstock is superb. We recommend this runner rug especially for use on stairs.
