We purchased three of these rugs. Love the color and rug but white powder comes off the back of the rugs and gets all over our hardwood floors. Why is this happening and what is the white powder?

good buy and worth the price. no shedding noted. shipping- first rug came ripped but overstock sent another right away (so 5 stars there).Read More
One year later, I still love this rug, thick and rich, colors blend with many settings, I have used it in 2 different rooms. A great buy.Read More
I waited almost a year after buying this rug to write this review. Sadly, I cannot recommend it to others. While we love the colors and design, it continues to shed far too much. More importantly, a great number of fibers are pulling out, causing it to look like a very old wool sweater. Lots of "pilling." We went for price over quality with this rug, and unfortunately, it doesn't seem like it was the right choice a year later.Read More
I bought this rug for the sitting area in my bedroom which we hardly ever use. The rug is shedding and the actual threads are coming out of it. I am not sure what to do. Should I trim them or pull them out....and if I start pulling out the threads that are sticking out I might as well through this rug out. The rug looks horrible. I bought several rugs all made by the same manufacturer and I am having the same problem with all three of them. Low quality!!Read More
We love this rug. Were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and appearance, especially for the price. Color and pattern look very muted (almost muddy) on my monitor, so I was worried it might look dull in real life, but but instead the effect is clear and fresh -- without being overly defined the way some inexpensive rugs can look. The green is a soft sage, and there are touches of red in the rug that give it a nice energy and contrast. It looks great against the medium-light hardwood floors in our living room. We've had the rug several weeks now and no excessive problems with shedding so far. We have ordered smaller items from Overstock before but this was our first rug purchase -- will definitely be ordering again.Read More
beautiful design but color is much duller than what appears in the picture; quick delivery, and carpet was very well packagedRead More
I use the one I bought in the dinning room. I could have use this rug in different sizes for my living room and bedrooms. I would be very happy to use it all around the house.Read More
I bought this rug in 4 sizes for our second home. I didn't want the worry that a large investment would bring so I opted to get all four rugs for what the 10x14 alone would have cost. One negative about ordering such large pieces is if you have a problem, returning is quite expensive and difficult but overall, I would do it again without hesitation. The rugs do shed more than I expected but the look was a 10 on my scale so not a big deal. One of the rugs had uneven tufts but again, not a big deal. They looked fabulous and when we sold the house, the new buyers made the sale contingent on my leaving these rugs.Read More
I purchased this rug after doing a lot of shopping around both online and in local stores. Although I was a bit hesitant about buying something this expensive without physically seeing it first, I am glad I took the gamble. The rug is slightly different than it appears online. The colors are softer and more muted. It is actually a pale sage green with light gold and burgandy accents. My husband even commented that it looked a lot better than he expected and he isn't one to notice such things. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.Read More
The rug I received was very different from what I expected it was gold in overall color, but I kept it because it worked in the room. It is buy no means green even in an antique sense. This seller needs to be more accurate with color description. Delivery was prompt and packaging was excellent.Read More

The white powder is likely latex that has dried up and is flaking off.
How to Size Your Room For an Area Rug
A rug in the right size can complement the whole room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull room, or make a subtle statement. However, if it's too big or too small, it may leave the impression of an unfinished or poorly decorated room. Before you start shopping for area rugs, you'll want to size the room. This guide will help you to select the right size rug in any room.
