I've owned this rug for six months now and it's ridiculous the amount it sheds. It's a pretty rug with a cool pattern, but because of the constant shedding, it always looks dirty and grungy. It needs to be vaccumed every day, but who has the time to do that?! I assumed there may be a little shedding at first, but it shouldn't be like this after six months! Wish I could return it.
