....just not very durable. It faded dramatically.Read More
I ordered this rug, and it was not a 5x8. Called Overstock, they shipped another one.... again wrong size. It is 3 ft wide. Guess this rug wasn't meant for me. It doesn't sound from the other reviews that anyone had an issue wit the size.Read More

I bought this for my 8-year old daughter's room, which was being done mostly in purple and teal. The rug is placed on a hardwood floor. I purchased a rug pad for it to help hold the rug down at the corners--we have a Roomba vacuum that was getting stuck under it. The color is exactly as shown on the website--a deep purple, and the product is as described. This is not a soft, fluffy rug--it's strips of leather that have been "rolled" and sewn together. It seems to be very durable and I would expect it to last for many years. Overstock got this to us in just a few days, even though it was expected to take over a week. It allowed us time to have it opened and aired out while we were out of town for a long weekend. The rug was folded and rolled for shipping purposes; after almost a month, there is still a crease at the center on the short edges of the rug that is still somewhat prevalent, but the other areas of the rug flattened out within the 3 days that we were gone. Perfect for us. Thanks, Overstock!Read More
I bought the 2 long runners that match this 2 years ago. I can actually put them in the washing machine! They dry nicely and are fresh and clean. I bought this one for my office and a round one for near the front door. Now with a dog and children in and out 50 times a day….I can just wash my rugs!Read More
This rug is exactly what I was hoping for. My only concern was how to vacuum a braided, leather rug...? Turns out all you need to do is make certain the setting on your vacuum is high. The quality is not the greatest, there are spots where the braiding is not taught and you can see the pad underneath, but that is just in a few areas and not all over. All in all, good product for the money. I will write another review on this in 6 month do determine the durability of the color and texture, it may not hold up well.Read More
Not bad for less than $80.00. It's the right color, but it's on te thin side so I don't know how long it will last. But for less than $80.00 for a 5x8 rug, I can't complain.Read More
So I've been in search of a rug for my new apartment for quite some time. When purchasing furniture for my new place I was so focused on the uniqueness of each piece that I was left wondering how I'd tie them all in together. My sofa is a dark gray (sometimes light blue looking in the light) while my accent chair is a maroon/rust color. Because of this I landed on this gorgeous rug, a little unsure of the leather material but fascinated by the color. I was hoping the purple would pull out the gray in the sofa, while the pinkish variations would enhance the burgundy tones of my chair. Because of the low price (especially for this size!) I decided to just go ahead and order it, especially since I had a 10% off coupon that made it even cheaper. When it finally arrived I unrolled it and couldn't believe how gorgeous the color was!!! It seems to be slightly more of a true purple than the photo might suggest, but that's to be expected with any sort of photo lighting. The color variations throughout the rug (see enlarged product photo) make it look textured and EXTREMELY high quality. I still can't believe how little I paid for this! As for the material itself, it is definitely different than wool but it isn't super uncomfortable or anything. I was surprised and pleased-though I would definitely recommend a rug pad (and the tag on the rug says you'll need one to prevent color transfer.) I should also not that I did have to leave my patio door open to let my apartment air out for little while because there was a SLIGHT leather odor, but nothing too bad. Overall this was a GREAT buy and if you looking at buying this rug just go ahead and do it!Read More
Questions & Answers
Facts about Soccer Balls
Obviously, having the right soccer ball is pretty important if you want to play a competitive soccer game. Once you've gotten your soccer cleats, soccer jerseys, soccer socks and other soccer gear ready to go, you aren't going to get very far without a soccer ball. There are three basic sizes of soccer balls. Players who are 5 to 8 years old play with a size three soccer ball. Youth soccer, ages 4 to 12, play with a size four, and anyone 13 and over plays with a size five. After that, soccer balls come in a variety of different materials and panel designs. A soccer ball has three basic pieces: the cover, the lining and the bladder. Each affects the "feel" and "control" of the ball.
