We bought two of the gray 2’3x7 rugs and love them. Even without a rug pad underneath, they feel thick and soft under your feet. We have had them for almost two years and they are still the same as when we first bought them. We vacuum regularly and have had no problem with shedding.
Let me start by saying that I absolutely LOVED the way this rug looked in my house (8x10 in the dark grey color)! I also loved the well made backing on the rug! Unfortunately I returned the rug due to the fact that it has little hair like fibers ALL over it that shed and resemble cat/dog hair. I have an 11 month old who crawls and after crawling on the rug for about 5 mins he was covered in the fibers (see pic) ! Also just walking on the rug transfers the fibers to your socks and gets them all over your house. Such a bummer that the rug has this issue because otherwise I would have most definitely kept it.
Ordered 2 runners. One runner is approximately 4 in narrower than the other, so if you are using together, might want to take that into consideration. Color was consistent between the two. I was hesitant to purchase based on the shedding problems others have experienced, but so far, I haven’t noticed any shedding. The rugs are heavyish with a nice backing and lay flat immediately without needing to reverse roll or stack heavy objects on them. Soft underfoot. Recommend a non-slip pad under, as they do slide (with effort), but do stay in place with normal walking without a pad.
It's beautiful out of the package, but soon starts falling apart. It sheds fibers nonstop. Fibers everywhere. It's a shame because it was initially a really nice rug. We've been using it for about six months and we're now shopping for a replacement. Into the trash...
