Please read the reviews. I did not listen. The odor is extremely offensive. The leather strips were coming out (there were several BALD spots) and the rug does look like raked up leaves. Please do not order this item. I have returned it and I will say that Customer Service was the BEST and I will continue to order from OVERSTOCK.COMRead More
The Leather strips come off on a regular basis and no way to reattach. The rug is under our coffee table so it is not exposed to a lot of walking on it. Also, the color is a lot darker than the picture on line. Initially the smell was overwhelming but it did go away after a few days.Read More
Works great with my mountain home. Recent guests could not believe the value and how perfectly it fits into my living area.Read More
aie from it not being the easiest to shake and you can not vacuum... natural, artistry and everyone loves it. a friend just requested the link he said the rugs he have been looking for have been **** he could not believe you can find something for that price that looked that good.Read More
Initial odor of leather was overpowering. Put rug outdoors for 2-3 weeks to eliminate strong smell. Once in the house pieces kept coming off the rug. Threw rug out.Read More
We love this rug and it is everything we wanted. We knew it would easily collect dog hair (which it does) but nothing that you can't shake out. We also have a little one starting to crawl. He loves it too except that he can easily pull out the leather strips. We just thought they would be a little bit more secure. Overall though, we still love it and would buy it again as it is what we wanted.Read More
The product was what I had anticipated. Some of the leather strips are falling off, but I had read from other reviewers that it was happening to theirs as well. I like the look of it, but my son and husband don't like the feel of it on their feet. Personally, the feel does not bother me. I think for the money, it is a good buy. It is not the best quality, but the price is reasonable.Read More
I held my breath when I ordered this rug. It is hard to get the full picture from the online description. I was careful to unwrap it in case I was going to return it. Once out and rolled out flat I was blown away! It is seriously cool! Also very soft to walk on in bare feet. I actually laid down on it - just the right amount of give. Super comfortable, fabulous look - and yes has that leather smell. But I like that! I highly recommend this rug!Read More
The rug was nice, but very masculine. The smell of leather was extremly overwelming. After being the house for less than 2 hours the whole house smelled of leather. Not the leather of new shoes or a fine purse, but a chemical lether smell. Great quality and color just an overwelming smell.Read More
The rug is beautiful. The rug has various shades of brown and gold. It did not have a strong leather smell. I read the reviews so I was expecting to lose some of the pieces but I have had the rug for over a week and so far experienced any shedding.Read More

How does one clean and maintain a leather shag rug?
Answer from Ask.com A leather shag rug is a rug that has leather strips that have been tucked and clustered into a sturdy backing made of cotton. This method of rug-making creates a leather shag that is thick and cushiony under your feet. A leather shag rug is also delicate, however, and it should be noted that, to keep it clean and add to its longevity, it should be strategically placed so it is not in a high-traffic area inside a home. Leather Shag Rug Cleaning Do's 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.
