The rug is amazing. Looks exactly like picture. Four important notes 1) You must use with a rug pad. Get the Durable rug pad sold on Overstock - it's the best one and made by Safaveih 2) All long-haired rugs shed. This rug is not low maintenance. It's about a look. If you have OCD don't buy it. You will need to vacuum often 3) This is not a rug for major foot traffic. A bedroom. Home office, Yes. 4) This is a great price for a 9 x 12 flokati.
