The Fettuccini Shag Rug is handwoven in India with 1/8" wide flat, luminescent satin polyester ribbon. It has a thick 1"-1.5" pile and comes in a variety of luminous hues. Color and size may vary due to the nature of hand-made items (up to 3" is a typical variation). This modern shag rug shimmers as it catches the light. It is surprisingly soft to the touch and they are both durable and easy to clean. Spot clean using mild soap and water, shake out periodically and vacuum without using a beater brush. The use of a rug pad is recommended.
