it was correct to size, but very heavy, had a super strong smell (yes, I know its leather, and leather has a smell, but this rug had a strong, overpowering strong smell!) and it shed like crazy. All I did was open it up, and lay it down. And it shed a ton of fibers. Am returning thanks to Os wonderful return policy.
I purchased six of these rugs and I regret it. You can see through the leather strips which actually doesn't matter because after a few days of walking on these rugs, the leather strips are all over the place. If you want something different in a rug that will be used to accent a piece of furniture these rugs are nice. If you intend to walk on these rugs, forget it.
I think some people expect this rug to be "cushion" like. It is not. I saw people complain about the straps coming out and downing the quality. HELLO IT IS HAND MADE! So it is like, seriously what do you expect. This isn't something you can just sew together with a machine to obtain the same look so the pieces have to be sewn/tied together.by hand. This may cause some piece to be loose - so what. It is really impressive. I will tell you that it feels really neat under your feet. I am not sure I would put this in an extremely heavy traffic area where people will be stepping on it all the time. It is more of a transitional or accent piece. Meaning you need to have possibly under a coffee table so only the ends are out or even near a bench where people briefly seat. But to have this in a spot where people walk on it 95% of the time more than a few times a day, may be a bit much.. It will definitely be a conversation starter. The leather smell that people mentioned is mild. It isn't like it is too strong. That smell speaks to the quality of the material and I think it is pretty impressive how it was decided to use scrap leather and recycle in this way. I would purchase this an other items like it again.
