The rug is amazing. Looks exactly like picture. Four important notes 1) You must use with a rug pad. Get the Durable rug pad sold on Overstock - it's the best one and made by Safaveih 2) All long-haired rugs shed. This rug is not low maintenance. It's about a look. If you have OCD don't buy it. You will need to vacuum often 3) This is not a rug for major foot traffic. A bedroom. Home office, Yes. 4) This is a great price for a
9 x 12 flokati.
I have owned Flokatis before and I am familiar with the fact that they come in several weights; blanket, summer, and carpet. Unfortunately, the description didn't indicate which weight this one was and it was much closer to a blanket weight than rug. The color was also disappointing, in the morning light it was yellow and not a natural wool color. I was looking for something completely different than I received and returned it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was VERY yellow
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not a dense enough pile - could see through to the woven backing
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not great
Another review of this rug as light and fluffy is a good description. It is almost like a big fluffy blanket. To me it almost looks like snow, or a big fluffy cloud. Prior to purchasing the rug I was afraid that it would look like a huge piece of matted fur on the floor - but it definitely does not. I was also worried that the larger (9x12) size might just magnify this, but it doesn't. It just looks awesome. The rug is also very soft and comfortable.
I think Overstock has in particular a fantastic selection of rugs, at outstanding prices. I definitely recommend this rug.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Well.

If you are expecting a heavy wool rug, this is not your pick. This rug is lite and fluffy like a blanket. Flokati rugs are washable, although I am not sure my machine would fit this rug. Yes, it does shed and is a lot of upkeep but, it is the perfect rug for my living room. Soft to your feet the shag is more like long fur! You can not vacuum it with a beater brush, it will be eaten up. This rug has gotten compliments since the day it arrived. I love it!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Has more yellow tones than white
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful
I was worried that the rug wouldn't be plush enough but am very satisfied. Almost ruined it and did bust my vacuum by having the beater brush going. Now I vacuum it using hardwood floors setting and it works well. I haven't tried using a wire dog brush yet but read that works too!

I was so excited when we first received this rug because it's soft on the feet and really pretty. Yet, the quality is awful. It is constantly shedding (we bought this 6 months ago). We literally have to clean clumps off the floor EVERY DAY! And they fly around so easily and they spread all over the house. Not worth it! I regret buying it for sure.
I ordered the 9'x12" rug and couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. The rug is exactly as pictured -- very light and fluffy, and an "almost" white color. It is not bright white, but it is white. Not yellow at all as mentioned in some other reviews. It feels VERY soft to the touch and is well constructed. I bought the Safavieh Durable Hard Surface & Carpet Rug Pad 9'x12', which I recommend, as the Flokati isn't thick or padded at all. The Safavieh rug pad needed to be trimmed about six inches on the short side to satisfy my taste which was easy to do with an ordinary pair of scissors. Others have mentioned this was a difficult task, but I simply used the scissors I had on hand in my kitchen drawer.
Back to the Flokati...it is a beautiful rug and is exactly the look I was going for in my contemporary home. It does, however, shed...a lot. At least for the first week I needed to vacuum twice a day. Now, three weeks later, I'm vacuuming about every second or third day. I find this maintenance level acceptable, you may not. I have the rug placed over a dark wood floor in my living room. The rug fibers migrate to the wood floor, thus, requiring the vacuuming. Remember, when vacuuming the rug you must turn off the beater bar function on your vacuum cleaner. Otherwise, you'll either ruin your new rug or ruin your vacuum cleaner.
Overall, I am completely satisfied with my rug and I LOVE it!
