What kind of care does a leather rug require? Can I vacuum it?
I was hoping for a brilliant purple rug, it actually is a dark black/purple. It's more like a braided rug to me than leather woven. I'm keeping it, but not totally satisfied, but a good deal I guess if you know something about these rugs....
Purple Matador Hand-woven Leather Rug (8' x 10')
Durable as they are striking in design, the Purple Matador is meticulously made by hand-weaving leather strips as the weft of the rug and a fine cotton strand as the warp. Add the smell and feel of real leather to any room with this rug.

While this rug looks great, it has developed holes, having only been down for four months.Read More

This is perfect in my dining room. If you don't need a plush carpet to walk on this is great. I have purple accents in the room and have this under the dining room table. The price was great. Only problem is the cat had spit up and after I cleaned it up I noticed the color faded a bit so be careful what you use to clean. I used a cat odor eliminator clear. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Not for walking on.Read More
Would definitely buy again. As noted by others, our cat does not claw or scratch this rug, and dog hair does not show.Read More
I love the look of it. Unfortunately, it's not very comfortable on bare feet. But I would definitely buy it again!Read More
Love the rug; the leather texture is different from what you normally get. However, the rug is not color fast and the purple transfers. We will be looking into cleaning it or something so it is color fast.Read More
I purchased 3 purple Matador area rugs to go over our hardwood floors in the entry, living room, & dining room. Purple is my favorite color, but it's hard to decorate with purple because a little goes a long way. I was extremely surprised that my husband liked the carpets almost as much as I do. We have 2 dogs and a cat. These carpets are durable and do not show dirt. The cat does not claw them as he does other area carpets that we have. They look great in the entry & living room, but the 3rd in the dining room was just too much purple for the space. I was going to return it, but carried it around in my car too long - that's the only problem. The price was right, so I'll just donate it.Read More
Questions & Answers
I have done some research for you and found these care instructions; The best option is to have your leather shag rug dry cleaned. If you cannot have the rug dry cleaned, you will need to vacuum the rug with an upholstery attachment. The final option, if it is small enough, is simply to shake the rug out in an outdoor area. I hope this helps you.
