When the rug arrived, which shipping was fast, I was so excited to open it and lay it out. The color and softness are wonderful. However, after following manufacturers' instructions on how to care for the rug, I vacuumed the rug. I vacuumed the rug four separate times and filled up the vacuum canister each time. I vacuum the rug two to three times a week due to the rug fibers on everything. Each time, I fill up the vacuum canister. I notice tons of loose threads, some which had to be removed. I really love the style, size, color and softness of this rug, but the maintenance has been a pain. I don't think that I would recommend this rug to someone else due to the amount of maintenance this carpet requires. I expected some shedding but nothing like this! I would return the rug but what a pain to get this big sucker to the UPS store!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are more beautiful than the picture shows. Colors are subtle. The burgandy is pronounced but not overbearing.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rug is soft, feels sturdy however sheds and the threads pull out.
