Liked the look of this rug for a few weeks. Have been using it for about 4 months. . My negatives are: 1 Continues to shed to the point of stopping up my vacuum cleaner. I have to take it apart and clean it out every 2-3 weeks. Most of the fibers are coming from the fringe. 2 dirt filters through the rug and fringe to create a major mess on a weekly basis. Have to roll up the rug to clean under it weekly. This occurs over all the rug but mostly in the fringe area. 3 Strands of jute are sticking up throughout the rug giving it a frayed look overall.
