This rug has gorgeous colors and design. However, it sheds like crazy. I've had for 5 months now and every time I vacuum it, the vacuum canister fills with its fiber. This is a nightmare because you cannot keep your house clean. My seats on it and starts to sneeze. Even the dog doesn't like it. It amazes me that companies have the courage to take such poor product to market. I would have been glad to have paid a premium say $50 more to not have to deal with this issue. I would not recommend this rug to anyone I like.
