Safavieh Cambridge Collection CAM134I Handmade Moroccan Geometric Ivory and Rust Premium Wool Area Rug – Personally I like the color

It’s not perfect, but for the money, it’s a fantastic rug. Like others say, it sheds quite a bit, at least at first. We’ve been vacuuming it every day, and every day it produces less loose material. And although someone commented that it was like having a cat around, i haven’t found it that bad. A little wool on the couch, but not so much that a quick cleaning or brush-off won’t work. As for the rug itself, it’s pretty close to perfect. We wanted a rug made from natural materials, and it being handmade is a nice touch, as far as i’m concerned. The thickness is right for me, cushioning but not super-plush, or anything like a shag rug. You’ll remember it’s a rug, not a padded-out carpet, but for me, that’s the whole point.

You can’t throw it in a washing machine, it has to be dry-cleaned, and it has ever-darkening spots on it as an entryway rug in my condo. It seems to be a quality rug as far as construction is concerned, however. Its not like the garbage rugs you buy with the rubber backing at wal-mart, t. Maxx, bed bath and beyond, etc. I think it would be like new if i brought it to a dry cleaner. I may throw some scotch-guard on it if i do have it dry-cleaned.

My rug is 2 inches shorter than 9 feet, which i took off one star for. I ordered the silver/cream color, and it definately is more of a purple gray. There are many tiny stray colored thread/straw/burlap?.Pieces that i have been cutting out for the past couple of days. Pulling them out did not damage the rug, but i prefer to cut them, because they really are tiny, single fibers. The rug is comfortable and really pretty. It does have a wool rug smell that i expect to fade over time. The cream parts of the rug have some color variation, with a darker color running through it in spots. This is likely what had been described as ‘dirty looking’ by other reviewers.

  • Almost like it has periwinkle mixed with it
  • This rug is thick and looks pretty nice. I got the beige but it looks
  • Personally I like the color

When it comes to the quality of this rug i am unsure since i only had it for a day. The rug itself is very nice. As for the color i can’t say that it’s silver but then again silver can be very many different shades. Just the way it is with any other color. I included a few pictures comparing it to gray and blue items. Other than that for the price this rug is great.

Totally love the rug, but its not silver. I totally love this rug, it was delivered on time, and quality is amazing. The only negative was the color, the silver/ivory is not silver and its not ivory. The silver is more like a bluish/purplish/darkish grey and the ivory is more like a light cream. The color still works great in my room so i didn’t mind, but if you are looking for a silver rug this is not it. I plan to put it underneath my king size bed so i can’t comment too much on the shedding that others have had since its barely going to be walked on. I still love the rug and wouldn’t mind ordering another onethe picture i uploaded is pretty close to the real color.

Yes it’s bluish, no shedding. . I appreciate the heads up that the grey would be bluish, which was fine for our home. I don’t understand all the shedding concerns – we got none of that.

It is a good looking rug and i’m ok with the shedding because it is not in a high traffic area. However, it has a strong smell that i do not like. I have taken it outside in the sun to air out and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I have contacted safavieh about the issue – still no response.

Terrific product, but terrible odor so had to get rid of the product. A lot of people posted reviews about them shedding excessively. But i have not had a problem. I vacuum once a week and do see wool fibers in the vacuum bag, but don’t find it a problem at all. Update after 6 months: i did have to get rid of the rugs because of an odor that would not go away.

Looks nice but releases a lot of fibers. Looks good, arrived quickly and looks just like the picture. Once unrolled, i immediately vaccuumed and noticed that it releases tons of fibers. . It was all over the place, stuck to the hose of the vaccuum and to our socks. But if you don’t plan on rolling around the rug, it looks nice and doesn’t look cheap. If it weren’t for all these fibers, i would have given 5 stars.

Rug looks just like picture, pale pink + ivory. Rug looks just like picture, pale pink + ivory. There is a very strong smell though that we are still waiting on it to go away and it’s been two weeks with the ceiling fan on the whole time too. The ivory does look a little dingy. Overall a very pretty rug though and exactly what we were looking for. Satisfied with the purchase.

Haven’t had any issues with it shedding.

Gave our dining room just the pop of color i was looking for, and looks awesome against our dark hardwood floors.

I was re-decorating my living room in gray and white with accents of yellow and blue and this rug looks absolutely perfect.

Almost like it has periwinkle mixed with it. If you’re looking for a neutral gray, this rug may not be for you. The gray has some bluish undertones. Not marked, but enough that it’s not truly neutral gray. Almost like it has periwinkle mixed with it.

I loved the look of this rug and the price made it very appealing. The fact that its wool- free of plastics- made it a good choice for our living room with a little one rolling around. The only thing that makes this a 3star review is that it sheds like crazy and is a little rough- like a bad wool sweater. I saw other reviews for similar rugs by this manufacturer and they recommended constant vacuuming for a while. This seems to help but i’m not super comfortable finding fibers on my baby’s face and all over my clothes when i get up from playing with him. I still put a blanket down but i hope more vacuuming will help make this the perfect rug, as my little one starts to crawl.

I am so in love with this rug. Shipping was super fast and the rug layed flat right when we unrolled it. Others have complained about shedding but it is very minimal and just needs to be vacuumed a few times. The color is not a dark navy but has a little more of a royal blue and navy combined. Very soft, perfect for my crawler and toddler. Very happy with this purchase.

It appears i may be the only person who purchased the ivory/navy colorway and i have to say that after reading every review, i purchased this rug and am very pleased. This is my 2nd safavieh rug and i am looking at a 3rd. I do not have the issues stated by other customers regarding shedding. But i understand that shedding is a natural occurrence when owning a new rug so it does not bother me. It is perfect in every way- aesthetically and economically. I highly recommend safavieh rugs.
