Buying this rug was a difficult decision. The description of leather being woven into the fabric was so different that we were skeptical. The rug was the color we were looking for and the perfect dimensions so we took a chance. Love the rug! The material was softer than expected but perfect. The leather is so well integrated that you do not really know it is there. The green is a woodsy green, excellent for some looking for earth tones to match their decor. The only cautions on buying this product; it has a fairly strong smell out of the box so plan to air before placing in the room and your dog may think the leather indicates it is a chew toy. Our six year old Lab has never chewed any household item I his life but he really loved this rug. We like this rug so much we are going to buy a second one.Read More
This is such a nice runner. The picture does a good job on capturing the color when you zoom in but it does a poor job at capturing the quality. It is well made. The only thing I wish was different is the end edging is a black band....too bad it wasn't something in the green family or at least brown? You can not go wrong with this runner at such a low price. The color is very nice with varying shades of green. I purchased this with the Rotell Rug Pad (2'6 x 12'). I think you would def need a pad underneath. There is a smell that I think will fade since it was wrapped in plastic, its not overwhelming, its not a deal breaker for me!Read More
Nice leather rug--it has help up well over the past month or so with our two Siberian huskies running around on it. The color seems more muted than the photo, which was slightly disappointing. I was hoping for something a little more vibrant. One issue I have had is cleaning this rug. I guess I really didn't take that into consideration when I purchased it. It is very hard to vacuum and always gets sucked up into my vacuum or my vacuum won't roll over it properly because of the texture of the rug (using the hard floor setting on the vacuum, not carpet setting). I have been using the extension wand to clean the rug instead of the hard floor setting, but it is time consuming and I don't feel like I am getting the rug as clean as I would like.Read More
The runner I purchased has been used in a high traffic area for 5 months and has held up remarkably well. Not only is it tough enough to withstand the traffic of two dogs, it is a very pretty rug. Love the olive green color. Highly recommended.Read More
Beautiful rug that fits the on site description perfectly. Quality product and very durable. I would recommend if you're looking for this size and color. I am very pleased with it.Read More
My husband and I love the rug. It's excellent quality for the price. It's long, comfortable, and doesn't shed. I was worried that the green might not be neutral enough for our apartment, but it's a very understated color. I recommend getting a rug pad to keep the runner in place and to provide a little more padding.Read More
I purchased this runner for a hallway with wooden floors. It was a nice length at 12 feet and, upon the advice of a prior review, I did purchase a pad so no dyes would bleed onto the floor. It is sumptuous and textural. Since it is leather, it does not lie completely flat, but the bumps and knobs add great visual interest. And the leather adds great smells to the hallway. At the price listed, I HIGHLY recommend this rug.Read More
This was purchased to give the dog a way to easily cross a wood floor from a patio door without slipping or scratching the wood-needed it to be 12' long. The weave of this rug is tight and consistent and it lays flat. The warp and short edges are black-gives it a little added rustic appearance. The texture is firm and "pebbly" feeling when barefoot, but if it was any softer it might not be woven tight enough to hold up. One more thing-the rug had a note that said it needed a rug pad "to prevent color transfer." Something to keep in mind if it is going to be in a damp location or over a carpet, I guess; we will add the pad and watch for that. And, the dog gives it four stars!Read More

Thank you for your interest. According to the manufacturer: Shake out, vacuum with non-beater bar vacuum. Spot clean with cold water. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.
Is the Rug Reversible? No picture of the back side that would help. Also how durable it is. I'm thinking of a runner in front of kitchen sink. I see one person put the larger rug under a dining table and is happy. I'd use a rug pad.
Thanks for your interest, This is reversible and is very durable.
I've never purchased a leather rug before. Am planning to use this in a high traffic area with many kids in snowy boots, etc. Would this be appropriate?
No I would not recommend.
