I have had these rugs for 11 months and hoping that the shedding stopped. It hasn't. I painted and got new furniture around these rugs so I wanted them to work. I have dark wood floors so I see the white fibers all over the floor and the fibers get on clothing if you lay on the floor and they are attracted to the socks so other rugs in the house have white fibers on them as well. I am very disappointed since I loved the rugs and designed an entire room around them.
I bought this rug for a great price so I got what I paid for. It sheds constantly and more than my dog. To make matters worse, it sits on dark hardwood flooring so it's impossible not to notice all the nice white and grey hairs all over the place. It would take too much effort to send it back so I will focus all that energy into vacuuming it until it stops shedding. Not sure that will ever happen. So learn from my mistake. This rug looks beautiful but if you're a neat freak it will create a lot of work for you.
