  • Shag is cheap looking and never stops shedding

    This rug is awful. I'd give it zero stars if that were an option. The "shag" design is really just strips of fabric (nylon, maybe?), not a true shag - and that portion feels like stiff artificial grass under your feet, not the soft shag texture one might expect. To make matters worse, it sheds - badly. There are easily 10-20 blades of "shag" grass all over my living room each day. And another 5-10 that are loosely held and pull right out of the rug. I've had it less than a month and it's falling apart. Although, given how cheap and poorly constructed the shag design of the rug is, maybe that's not such a bad thing - it might actually be an upgrade once all the shag has finally fallen out. I'd consider selling this used, but I wouldn't want to damage my own reputation selling such an inferior product.

  • Good product

    So first of all I must say that we picked this product because of the vibrant colors in it that go perfectly with the design in our living room. Upon receiving this rug we were pleased with the quality(thickness and weight) of it and the colors. Also the size was right and the price point was great. The only issue we are having is that some of the colorful threads have started coming out of the rug. We are hoping that this won't keep happening because that would make this purchase a total wash since the colorful threads in rug is why we picked it. So far it has only been a few threads that have come out. We are keeping an eye on it but so far I would recommend this product.

  • Decent, Visually Appealing

    The rug looks great in our living room! The color is a dark, rich brown with the ribbons being russet red, orange, and beige. When I unrolled it, only two hours passed until the entire rug lay flat and there are no curling corners. My cats LOVE to roll around on the rug, which is definitely a fur magnet. Taking the advice of others, I have not ran a vacuum over the rug for fear it'll loosen the little ribbons. I have, however, used the Pledge Fur Sweeper to get up most of the hair. That seems to work the best, but I'm bummed out because I can see little brown fibers coming out of the rug. Even when my white cat rolls around on the rug she will come off with little brown fibers in her fur. There are two ribbons that seem to have come loose already, so I just cut them off.I really like the rug, it's aesthetically pleasing, but it's a pain to clean. If you have pets make sure you have some time to devote to cleaning gently as not to disturb the quality of the workmanship. I've also found that gently taking a Dustbuster or working with the upholstery attachment from my vacuum can also help clean the rug. This product is recommended as long as you realize you'll need to put some work into the maintenance.

  • Better than Photo

    I bought this rug to pull my color theme together in my living room. I have a chocolate sectional and a deep red loveseat. This rug is amazing and it looks more incredible in person. The bursts of color are raised up higher than the chocolate base and it gives it an interesting textured look!

  • Not 100%

    When I first got it and rolled it out I loved it, don't get me wrong I still love the look of it but did not expect the burst to made of ribbons, was expecting a carpet material. Anyway, I love the look but as you know ribbon is going to fray and I think when I vaccum it is pulling these ribbons causing them to fray and once ribbon starts to fray it is neverending. Overall, it is a beautiful well made rug. I have to vacuum often because of it being wool and it seems that everything sticks to it and with it being brown it shows. I can't recommend it because of the ribbon material and everytime I vacuum I cringe. Just make sure you keep your vacuum on the higher setting. sometimes I just use a sticky roller to get up any dust or hair. Good luck on your rug purchase.

  • Gorgeous Rug!

    I am absolutely in love with this rug! I have been on the hunt for an area rug to put in my tan walled, brown furnitured living room. I had color in mind, to bring the space together and brighten up the room, but was having a very hard time finding the right fit. Then I discovered this beautiful rug! I was a new customer to and in general, somewhat skeptic of ordering an area rug online, without feeling or seeing it. Trust me, potential buyers, this rug will not dissapoint! It's crafted beautifully and is just the absolute right touch of color in my neutral room. Exactly what I was looking for. I have received only the best of compliments.

  • Beautiful Carpet

    It is as good as it gets, makes a stunning statement for the entire room. Laid it over Ivory carpeting to define a conversational area, and it draws people to sit and admire it. The conversation always starts about the rug itself! Thanks again for the varied products you offer.
