Beautiful rug has a nice, plush feel. The sculpture gives it character. Love the unique look for a zebra rug. Wanted something a little different than a traditional black/white zebra rug and this is perfect. Since the rug is wool it is shedding quite a bit. This is my first wool rug but read reviews and talked with people who said the rug will stop shedding and to vacuum it frequently for the first 30 days.
