I dragged my family all over the Bay Area last weekend in search of the perfect sisal rug for our dining room. There are so many different varieties - color, texture, weave...it was not a quick decision kind of day. We found a great remnant place, but the binding cost as much as the rug. Last night I ordered one online, but without actually touching it first, I'm skeptical of it's quality. I was hoping to find a huge sisal warehouse like an oasis at the end of a long journey, but no luck.
