I bought this rug a few months ago and really like it. Very high quality. Wonderful statement piece. I will say that it is difficult to vacuum because it is such a thick shag. Also, it attracts dirt quickly. Not good for a family who spills things or a family who has dogs. I also wouldn't recommend it for a high traffic area because of the dirt it collects.
I got this about a year ago for the living room. It has held up very well in a high traffic room with a 60 lb dog zooming around. It does shed a lot at first (think small hairballs and filling up the entire vacuum after a once-over), but has eased, and it still looks pretty thick and plush. The real wool is great as it is naturally repellent (dog has thrown up on it a couple times and after cleaning up, you can't tell that anything happened). GREAT rug for the price.
This rug exceeded my expectations. I did find the measurements accurate and the braided tassels are not as long as some other reviews state. The tassels are about 1" width X 6" length. The rug is thick, somewhat shaggy and pretty exotic. It is a nice accent piece for any space that needs some spice. The first night I had the rug on my living room I had an unexpected visit. My visitor was very tempted to try out my new rug. The rest is not too family oriented. Thank you to my new rug!
This is a great rug for the price. It runs a bit small and is not quite a true 5 x 8. I think the 5 x 8 size takes in the generous fringe, so be aware of this. The rug also sheds a lot, but this is normal with a wool rug with long pile. Just vacum it a lot in the first few weeks and enjoy!

Beautiful rug! The colors and pattern show a great contrast. It's the first thing I see when I walk into the bedroom and I get an exotic boost every time I enter. I have vacuumed it 3 times; outside of fiber fuzz, it remains thick and lush.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is tightly weaved. Doesn't seem like it will lose strands.

I wish oh I wish that I could give this rug 5 stars. I've been wanting this particular rug from sometime now and I finally bought it. But I'm not so happy about it now!:/ as pretty as it looks, it sheds like a cat!! I see fur balls all around my wood floors. I've vacuumed it thrice now since I've bought it but it's still shedding!!! It's so frustrating! Huhhhh. I hope this issue resolves soon by vacuuming it more and more. I still love it though.
I'm really disappointed with the quality... the rug sheds like crazy. I feel like I have a thousand white cats in the house... I have the rug for over a month and it's same as the first day. It's look old already... I love the look but that's all...
I wanted the Beni Ourain look for less. This was the best value I could find that was still 100% wool. Had some weird factory defects like extra long shag that hadn't been trimmed, but nothing I couldn't take care of myself. Yes, it sheds like crazy. Wool rugs will do that, and I think the weaving is not as tight as it could be. The size was true and was not including the fringe tassels.
I have been searching around for a rug of this Moroccan style for weeks and I came across this one. I ended up purchasing it because of its reasonable price (as compared to others). It sheds a little bit, but is beautiful and soft. It really makes my apartment cozy. Love it!
I was not sure about this purchase, it could have been to thick and the tassels too awkward, this type of carpet is difficult to buy with out actually seeing it in person. I love it! It is soft and lays flat the tassels do not come off as an afterthought. I have it on a wall to wall carpet to add a pop of color. It was a great decision. I'm loving my room and the way the carpet pulled it all together.
