I bought this rug in the beginning of July. Almost 5 months later, it still constantly sheds. I had read the reviews that it shed, but that it stopped after a couple vacuumings. I vacuum at least once a week, and often more than that, because the rug sheds so much it makes these little fur balls ALL OVER my house. It gets fibers on clothing that are very difficult to remove. My house constantly looks messy, and I am sick of cleaning it constantly. If the rug weren't so big (and I hadn't paid as much for it), I'd have just thrown it out a while ago. It's really a pity, because the rug is very attractive, and matches our decor very well. I am very disappointed in this rug.
