"My rug seems to be shedding a lot. I have dark hardwood floors and everything shows. Is there anything I can do to reduce shedding...I really love the rug other than the shedding"
looks great and more expensive than it is. only problem is that it sheds a LOT - even after having it over a year, it still sheds and fills up the vacuum w/ sheds whenever you vacuum it. still, looks so good it's worth it....

After almost one month of daily vacuuming that continuously clogged my very high end vacuum cleaner, I rolled up this rug and it has been in my storage building ever since. Not only would it shed all over your clothes (you could not walk on it with dark slacks without being completely covered in white fuzz), but there would be large clumps of it all over the rest of the house. You also had to be very careful to vacuum the nap so that there were not bare spots visible through to the floor. It was very chic looking and I received many compliments on it, but it just wasn't practical for every day living. Unfortunately, just when I gave up on it and planned to start the return process, my husband had to be hospitalized and by the time he was stabilized and I could think of other things, too much time had elapsed for a return to be accepted. A very expensive experiment that still leaves a bitter taste.Read More
These rugs shed profusely! One vacuuming will clog up your vacuum cleaner! Can't keep the little "white hairs" off my hardwood floors. I'm sure our lungs are full of them too. I love the look and feel of the rugs but I can't stand the mess!Read More
I wouldn't call this rug "posh". It's not very thick, the backing actually shows thru. Perhaps this will change once it has aired out.Read More
Unfortunetly this rug is going back. I laid it on the floor for about a week but there is this strong odor coming from it. I thought it would go away but everytime i enter my bedroom the carpet smell is apparently. smells like mildew, definetly going back. also, there is no backing on it, i was putting it under my bed so it was over but you will need a nonslip mat under it if you are putting it anywhere else.Read More
