Not good for indoors. Looks nice, but sheds terribly., By Happy in the Catskills
I bought a 6x9 Vejuvio Jute Rug two months ago so that my one-year old would have a durable, but soft natural rug for crawling and playing. The quality is fine. The material is essentially like a big cat scratcher. Very neutral in color. However, the rug constantly sheds little coarse fibers. I've vacuumed it about 6 times with a high power vacuum, and still when I sit on the rug in dark colored pants, they are instantly coated in little tan hairy fibers. I complained to Natural Home Rugs, and at first they said they had never heard of this problem, then came back a few days later and said actually I should expect it to happen with any jute rug, and they suggested I move it to an area with less foot traffic. I guess a crawling toddler is just too much traffic (!!) for this rug. The best I could get from them was a 20% "good faith" reduction. I will end up using this on a porch, and have resumed my search for a soft, natural rug for the living room that does not shed!!
