The photo of this rug makes it look like it has large, green circles. That is not the case - the circles are actually mottled with black threads, and do not look very green at all in person. That is not why I am rating this "poor," however. The rug is EXTREMELY poorly made. The fibers from this rug come out in handfuls. You can literally brush your hand across the top of this rug and end up with a grapefruit sized ball of carpet fibers. I have had the rug for approximately 3 weeks now, have vacuumed it countless times, and this is still the case. The fact of the matter is that the fibers are not sewn into the rug backing very well at all. Equally as distressing, the "green" fibers come out and get into the black crevices and are nearly impossible to get out. We have a Dyson vacuum cleaner, and I still have to take the wand attachment and go in between each of the green circles to get the black areas clean. It is a futile task, however. The rug fibers still come out in fluffy, annoying piles. This rug is priced a little "too good to be true," so please don't be suckered into buying it. I will not be keeping this rug.

The rug is very thick, comfortable, well-made, and quite beautiful. We have been using it in a medium traffic area for about 6 weeks now, and remain very pleased with the purchase. It does have a small amount of shedding, where the light green fibers show up in the black areas of the rug, but the problem is minor, and will lesson with time. From the picture on my computer I thought the rug design had areas of solid green on black, but the green areas are actually speckled with very small black dots. In fact, a couple of our family members do not consider the rug green at all, but think it has an overall charcoal look. Personally, I definitely see green. The rug is a good value. I gave only 4 stars in workmanship because there have been two fiber strands that have come loose, but I'm pretty sure those are isolated instances. The rug seems to be well-made overall. We love its thickness and plush comfort.
