Loved the rug, the softness and the color . . . .but DO NOT wash it....I washed it once alone in the washer using cold and delicate per the instructions on the rug then dried it on very low . . and the rug basically blew apart . .there was black fuzz and foam every where. The seams were so raveled and blown out that there is no fixing it. Very, very disappointed in the quality. It should be stated on the rug that to vacuum is ok - -but do not wash. I had the rug less than 4 months.
