Sorry to say this otherwise beautiful rug made by a famous manufacturer sheds like crazy! I've vacuumed it at least 2 dozen times, and it continues to shed. I'm hoping it will stop soon as It is next to impossible to keep up with the vacuuming and swiftering to clean up around it! Not to mention my poor dogs and the lint all over all of us if we walk on it! I didn't return it since I purchased many other things to coordinate with it and so I'm hoping for the best.....I wouldn't recommend it unless you know something I don't in terms of solving this problem!
