Pros...Rug is really pretty, looks expensive at first blush, very soft, odor disappeared after a week or so, true to color descriptions and price is right. Cons...After 4 weeks and alot of vacuuming, it is still shedding ALOT...little tuft balls, especially when there is foot traffic. Also, lots of actual loose threads pop up, which i have had to clip with scissors. Conclusion... U get what U pay for...ok purchase if you are really stuck in that budget...otherwise, save your money for a while longer and go for a better quality rug. Hopefully shedding will taper off, or I will have to save for another rug, as this one will likely disappear b4 my eyes.
