I am going to be completely honest here. The rug was absolutely beautiful. I loved it from the moment I opened the package. BIG PROBLEM. The shedding. OMG, I couldn't believe the amount of fibers that came off of this rug. I have a tile floor, glass table in my kitchen, granite countertops, the fibers were all over the place within minutes of putting it down. No problem, I took out my vacuum cleaner. I have an upright and a central vac. I decided to use the upright (which has the see through container). Within 2 minutes the entire container was full. What?? So I emptied it and vacuumed again. Same thing. I couldn't believe it. I did this 5 times. Each time the fibers filled this huge container. So I decided I'd do a little experiment. I vacuumed a 1 foot square spot 200 times to see if the fibers would stop shedding. I really wanted to keep the rug. It didn't. They just kept coming out. Also the rug had a very bad smell to it. Sadly I had to send it back to Overstock. The fibers and smell were overwhelming. I would not recommend this rug due to the severe shedding. It never stops!!
