I've had this rug for months now and while it looked nice to begin with, it immediately started to create massive balls of lint and is now ALWAYS full of balls of lint that cheapen the overall appearance of the rug. I vacuum the piece regularly, but there appears to be no limit to the amount of lint this rug will generate. Not only that, but my puppy eats the massive balls of lint when she can. While I realize that it's not the rug's fault, it would be a lot more enjoyable if there was less lint to collect daily. This is not my first rug purchase with Overstock and I still love the first one I bought. This one was a mistake.
