I read all the reviews where others had shared that the ribbons in the rug came loose but I purchased anyway. The rugs are absolutely beautiful, very thick...appears very expensive but the way the ribbon is attached the design is poor (I also purchased 2 runners for the kitchen). I wouldn't mind the fact that the wool sheds this I am aware of with wool...as this will get better over time, but the ribbon comes apart from the rugs even when I am not vacuuming. Yes the fear is eventually there will be no ribbon. BTW I seached between Home Depot and Amazon and the prices on OS were by far the best. Regrettably I did send the rugs back, I had saved the packing bags. The return process with OS was simple. They emailed me return labels, I packed them back into their bags and took them to UPS. I have chosen another style...still wool and again, OS beat everyone else on price. I will go with a wool rug again as the quality of wool surpasses all other material for rugs.

Loved the way the rug looked, but the filament from the burst patterns came out with the beater brush. Ended up donating the rug.

PROs: Gorgeous rug. The starburst designs are actually made of ribbon and raised, giving the rug a very unique (and expensive) look. The colors of the ribbons really pop against the dark brown background and brighten up my living room. The thick pile feels lush underfoot and we even like laying on the rug. CONs: The shedding. As other reviewers pointed out, this rug is constantly fuzzing up and becomes covered with lint balls. While others have mentioned daily vacuuming, I have been able to get by with a lint brush (really!) and dimming the lights. But if you really, really like a lint-free rug, this isn't for you. Also, any piece of lint is spotlighted against the rich background.
Ok. I am not even home that often to walk on it but it sheds brown wool pieces! As if the ties are coming undone but I haven't figured out from where. I have beige carpets so all around the rug the stuff is sitting there staring at me. I am thinking about returning it because it's not stopping!
I will not recommend this rug to any body. The rug poorly made as you start to vacuum it the ribbon kept coming out... Do not buy it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Ok
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was poor. The ribbon started to pull out and the color was different . I had to return it back and exchange it.
One year later, I am still in love with this rug. It is my most dear purchase. If you have pets or children, you will spend a LOT of time cleaning this rug. It must be vacuumed at least twice a day. The ribbons are gorgeous but I have lost a few of them. In spite of it all, the picture does not do the item any justice. Upon purchase, it will be love at first sight.
quality seems nice, but the brown wool fibers shed constantly and is quite messy. And the colored sun burst threads unravel really easy. I am not sure how long this carpet will last!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looks the same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. seems like good quality if it wouldn't shed so much

It's about 4 1/2 years old, people still say how much they like it. The ribbon parts are wearing badly, many have come out and whats left is frayed and wrinkled. I'm a single person without pets. The dark brown carpet still looks brand new. I have turned it and moved to other rooms to make the wear more uniform. It's not all that expensive so maybe 4 to 5 years is all you are supposed to get.
In the pictures, this rug looks bright, with a gray/brown background. In actuality, the background color is black and the rug is quite dark. I need light in my room and this carpet darkened everything, so I returned it.The picture is deceiving.
When this rug arrived my first thought was "beautiful." It's thick. The brown color is rich. The sun bursts are made of ribbons which really make the colors shine. I was so disappointed when after just a month it started to look worn. The ribbons come out VERY EASILY. Just walking on the rug makes them pop out. The wool sheds like crazy. I will be lucky if I get a year out of it.
