"Why did you choose this product?"
I originally purchased this rug in September of 2009 for my great room. I really needed a bigger rug, but I liked it so much that I kept it. It did shed a bit the first year, but any quality, thick wool rug will shed. Regular vacuuming will take care of it, and it will stop shedding. After a couple years, I bought a bigger rug for my great room, and I moved this rug to my dining room where it still resides today. I've had it for 7 years, and it's still in great shape. My dining room furniture is a bit formal, and the zebra rug gives the room a less stuffy look. The rug is actually black and ivory, NOT white. Great rug, and I highly recommend it....

I'm in love with this rug! The impact it made in the room is amazing. The colors are perfect - black & more winter white instead of bright white. The shedding other reviewers talked about won't be an issue because of where this rug is located. I walked all over it for several hours getting it situated, moving the table over it, decorating the room, etc & didn't notice any shedding. I would expect it though since it's wool, so it wouldn't bother me. All my other wool rugs have been shedders, but stop after a bit of time. They last forever and don't pack down - unlike the polyester or nylon rugs. Update: I still love the rug! The corners/edges flattened out within a couple of days and shedding has slowed as expected. I added a couple of photos so colors can be viewed in a real life setting. Reminder: this is not a stark white, it's a softer white, but the black is very dark. Even in the low light of my room, the design still pops nicely.Read More
I had read reviews saying how much this carpet sheds but I guess I was hoping that these reviewers were neat freaks! It sheds. So much so - we had to vacuum every other day. Love the look of the carpet and it is comfortable under foot but not sure it is worth the inconvenience.Read More
The only thing is I expected it to be ivory/black as the description says but it is white/black. It still is something that goes with my design and fits right in. Very plush, great buy.Read More
High quality rug at an excellent price. Have not had the shedding problems that some have reported but it is under a dining room table that is not often used.Read More
After reading reviews for this product, I was hoping to receive one of the 'nonshedding' versions. But unfortunately, I got a shedder. It is lovely in person with great color and design and plushness. BUT, it really does shed....all the time. It makes it look really messy and cheap because of this. I am constantly pickin up lint and pieces of rug. I'm hoping it stops eventually, but I'm scared I will end up with a bald rug:(Read More
We bought this rug about 3 months ago or so... I reviewed it at the time (as socalamanda67) and loved it. However, after several months of having to vacuum it EVERY TIME SOMEONE WALKS ON IT, we're done, and ready to toss it out. It's a shame, because it's a beautiful rug, lovely quality, thick and plush and the colours are beautiful. But the shedding is UNBEARABLE. Not just a little bit, but handful after handful of white and black fibers, both on the rug and the hardwood floor around it. I could vacuum this rug every day and it wouldn't be enough. I hoped the shedding would diminish over time, but it's been several months, and it shows no signs of slowing down. We're now searching for a replacement rug. I hate to say it, but don't waste your money, unless you don't ever plan to walk on the rug, or else you really, really, really like to vacuum. :-(Read More
I was really impressed by the photos of the rug. Too bad I was fooled becuase this rug is HORRIBLE. I had to vacuum it every single day. It sheds like crazy. At any given point I can run my hand on the rug and end up with a hand full of fibers. I ended up giving up and buying something new. It ruined the whole look of my dining room, making it look messy. DO NOT BUY THIS RUG! Waste of money!Read More
I received this rug yesterday. Just gorgeous! Everything I'd hoped for. I deducted 1 star because it's not .625" (5/8") thick as described. It's barely .50 (1/2"). I'm disappointed about that. The lighter color goes from a pretty yellow-y beige to white depending on the nap; how you brush it. I like the depth and variation of this color. Gives it a more authentic look! I ordered the 6' x 9'. It's in our family room and it totally the 'pop' and look I was going for. It's a Safeviah brand rug from India. It's wool, so I vacuumed it thoroughly twice before adding the oval glass table on top. It will continue to shed for a while as wool rugs do and I have no issue with that. Great quality and as always, quick delivery time! There are a few stray strands of wool that I may trim. Since this is hand-tufted, it's to be expected as well.Read More
This rug is of excellent quality and high end craftmanship. I am extremely happy with it. Color is more white than ivory.Read More
