i've had this rug for about 2 months now and i must say i would have to throw this rug out. i've been vacuuming every 3 days but i get a full bag of lint every time i vacuum. it's crazy how much lint is flying around the room, on my clothing, socks, just everywhere. i love the design so much that i've tried everything possible (shampoo, lint roller and etc) to get rid of lints but it's hopeless. my other rugs from pottery barn did have lints to start with but they eventually disappeared after a few vacuuming. this safavieh rug is so poorly made. i would never buy anything made by safavieh. so disappointed.
