      I may sound like a broken record, but I can't say enough about Safavieh rugs, to me they are the best in workmanship and design. I will never buy anything but them. This rug will bring out my new floor when my remodel is done.

      I was so worried about the color but it was just as described. Matched perfectly to the wall color I had already chosen. Yes, you will have some ribbon loss but it won't affect the overall look. I purchased this for a baby's room and I've had it now for over 2 years. Still gorgeous!

      I don't normally write reviews but had to for this. It's pretty, and that doesn't last long because all the ribbons start to pull out after you vacuum the first time. I used the floor setting too so the vacuum brush bristles wouldn't snag the ribbons. I have loose threads everywhere and it won't stop shedding!!! I have giant sized blue wool dust bunnies everywhere!!! Worst carpet I have ever bought!

      This rug looked pretty and unique online so I decided to bite the bullet and order such a big and probably difficult to return item without seeing it. I am so glad I took the plunge, it is absolutely beautiful! I was looking to brighten up my living room and this definitely does the job. Looks much more expensive than it was. It is thick, plush and well made. The bursts have a metallic sheen to them that makes them a true focal point.

      what I liked most was the color combonation was exactly what I wanted. the burst shapes are actually "New Shag" against the very tight medium nap of the background...

      Verified Purchase

      For the price it is OK, I just received the 5 x 8 and the 3 x 5 yesterday. The color is a fair match to what you see online. The quality is what you would expect for the price. The 5 x 8 rug has a very noticeable open spot where there is no pattern and it is odd looking, all the bursts are bunched over on one side. I am considering returning the product for a replacement. The 3 x 5 came with small black marks on the light blue portion or the rug, almost like someone had a marker in their hand when they were packing the rug this one I will return for a replacement.

    • Q:

      "Does this come in a 6' x 9' size?"

      • A:

        yes it does. this Item #: 12375685 should help you

    • Q:

      "How do you recommend vaccuuming this particular rug with the tufts that can pull out?"

      • A:

        Vacuuming is the best and easiest way to clean your wool rug and will help extend the life of your wool rug. For the first year or two of owning your wool rug you may notice that excess fuzz ends up all over the rug. This is just loose fibers working their way out and is not a malfunction of the rug. You can vacuum the fuzz up and eventually the rug will cease this “shedding”. Make sure that the beater bar of your vacuum is set high so that it does not agitate the rug too much. Also be sure to make an M with the vacuum to help prevent matting of the rug.
