I purchased this rug in the fall of 2010. I gave it 3 stars because of the excessive shedding!!! Microfiber dust gets all over hardwoods, throw blankets, and clothes. I have to use a lint brush if I lie down on the rug. Do Not Buy if you have a child with asthma! I love the colors and style of this rug but if I could choose again, I would not buy it because of its upkeep.
