I bought 2 for a friends house warming gift and they are awesome; thick and uniform width leather strips (from a local store). I purchased 2 here for myself and what a difference! They are inside and outside my front entrance and although they do catch dirt and dust they are of poor quality. The strips are random ends and pieces of various sizes and lengths and not well attached and come loose easily. I would suggest looking around for a better rug than these. The look is great and we both get compliments but theirs are not shedding while mine are shedding and showing bald spots. Very disappointed... :(
My. Decorating style is eclectic and this fits right in as a walk off rug at my entry. But it can be used anywhere indoors as an accent. It does lose quite a bit of its pieces regularly, so I don't expect it to stay useful for more than 5 years.
The rug is really pretty and unique. It is exactly as shown in the picture. It has two drawbacks, that's why only a 3* rating. The pieces of leather fall off the run. I don't vacuum it, just gently shake it out and pieces fall out. If I even pick up the rug to move it, pieces fall off. The second thing is that is STINKS when it arrives. Hang it outside for a week or two to help the odor dissipate.
The picture of this rug shows more gold tones than are in my rug. The rug I received is entirely brown, but I understand that no two of these rugs are exactly alike. The rug is unusual and really make a statement in any room. The leather will soften over time and I hear it is hard to wear out. Some of the individual pieces are loose, but the quality is still very good.
These leather rugs really meet my needs. The color is perfect. They are not really comfortable to walk on barefooted but they are OK. I like the look. They do "shed". Pieces of the leather that are not tightly woven into the backing come out. I either put them back in or throw them away. This is not a big problem. I can't say I highly recommend them but they work in my area.
It is as stated but color is darker than pictured. Is ok in my situation since blends with my brown leather furniture. It is currently in area where no one walks so don't know if sheds. I think going forward will just shake it out rather than vacuum. Don't want to take chance in losing some possible loose pieces. So far am well-pleased and feel is certainly worth what paid for.
Bought this to go w/my sons camouflage theme room. Looks great but had bad smell & leather pieces keep falling off. Not made well. Was thinking of returning it only due to workmanship. Really love the look but it really doesn't feel that great on feet. Good for looks only.
I was hesitant to buy this rug after reading one or two poor reviews. I'm so glad I decided to get it. It is just beautiful. It did shed a few pieces of leather on the first shake, but still looks great. the color is slightly darker than the picture, but close. The smell is not overwhelming, as some reviews state. It just smells like leather, which I find quite pleasant. I highly recommend buying this rug. The price can't be beat, and it is truly gorgeous.
I was a little unsure of this product's quality related to the photo's on line. I must tell you the pictures are far off on this product. I as extremely elated with this purchase! It was well worth the price and then some. Thank You once again overstock.com.
