LOVE my rug, as other reviewers have said it's very high quality and makes my room 'pop' precisely what was needed to brighten things up around here. Now, as far as the shedding. It's a thing. This rug shed like you can't even imagine for the first few days and kept clogging up my Roomba. Just as I was beginning to be concerned, it would never stop...it has. It's still kind of shedding (1 week later) but nowhere near as when I first got it. Just be aware that it will happen, but I would still recommend the rug!
