This rug is unique and attractive. I've received several compliments on my new purchase. I will say that the shedding can be a bit of a nuisance. The rug is under my dining room table and I find the fibers clear down the hall, clinging to the legs of the chairs, on clothes, everywhere! The ribbons of the starburst patterns have started to fray after vacuuming, but for the most part it is holding up very well.
