After all of the positive reviews about this product's color, we ordered it for our home. First, I discovered from doing more research afterwards that hand-tufted means that the visible fibers are not woven/tied into anything. Therefore, the rug will only last as long as the adhesive will let it. So, not the best investment. I vacuumed the carpet once, and it shed A LOT. Also, the color was not what we hoped for. It was a pea green, and the other colors were super muted with a lot of brown in them. I am typically a warm color girl, but even this was a little dull for me, except for the green which was too bright. We returned this rug. Unfortuantely, we also had to pay $**** to do so. I wouldn't recommend the experience to another. But, the carpet came quickly!
