      When we bought this rug, we had no idea how much our kids would love to lay on it and watch TV or play cards! It makes the floor so much better for hanging out. One thing we did notice is it shed moderately the first two weeks of ownership, which it no longer does. Also, we have a strict no shoe policy in our home which helps keep it clean. I mostly just shake it hard to clean it, sometimes broom sweep it and spot treat any stains.

      Verified Purchase

      Bought this rug thinking it would be white. It was delivered with a yellowish discoloration and awful smell.

      Love this rug for my space. It is so soft. It does have a weird smell to it, but it airs out after a while. It is not totally white. It has more of an off-white yellowish tone to it, but I don't mind that.

    • If you're worried about the odor...
      Verified Purchase

      It eventually goes away. I'd recommend leaving it outside under the sun for a day or two but if not it still goes away after a few days of your house smelling. At first I was worried because the smell was all over our apartment and at the time I was still pregnant so I was smelling it 10x worse but after a week or so the smell was gone. It is a very nice quality rug and well worth paying the three hundred something for it. I'm glad I purchased it and it looks sooooo perfect in my babys room!

      Verified Purchase

      Giving it 4 stars because the rug does have a yellowish tint. Although, I was prepared for that after reading the reviews. Overall the rug is thick and extremely soft! I love it.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Is the rug cruelty Free? Is it woven wool or actual hide? It's not clear to me."

      • A:

        This is a handwoven sheepskin rug with a polyester backing.

    • Q:

      "How is this rug constructed? The description is a little confusing. It states it is handwoven made from sheepskin and wool."

      • A:

        I love this rug. It has a quilted cotton backing & the rug (top) is 100% wool sheepskin. The color is not pure white because it's sheehskin so it will vary with the particular sheep from which it came. But the slight cream color is minimal & works very well in my sitting area. I have a white setee & it blends beautifully.

    • Q:

      "Is this rug a true WHITE? I don't want an off-white rug... All of the ones I purchased have had a "yellow" tinge and are not WHITE was described... Thank you"

      • A:

        It looks exactly like picture. It is white for the most part but it does have a slight yellowish tinge dispersed throughout almost like a polar bear. Since it is a natural fiber, I think the only way to get a true white is to purchase something synthetic.

      • A:

        This is a sheep skin rug and will have colors varying from white to yellow.

        It is as shown in the picture.

    • Q:

      "I ordered this rug because it says the rug was made in India. However, I just received the rug today and on the back, it says the rug is made in China. Can you please confirm where the rug is made? If it actually is made in China, why does it not disclose correctly on the website? It is quite important for me to know where the product is made. thanks."

      • A:

        Hello Trang, this rug was made in China. We will have the description updated now. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Have a great day!

    • Q:

      "Are any dyes used on the rug?"
