This is a handsome rug but it is not at all soft. I'm using it inside the front door so it's fine but I wouldn't recommend it for a living space where bare feet are involved. It adds a rich texture to the space where I'm using it. It greets me every morning when I come downstairs and is a beautiful start to every day. The browns of the leather are rich and well represented by the picture. I expected the leather of the rug to be more regularly shaped than random, but the strips are somewhat irregular. It was a great value and looks much more expensive than it was. I have no regrets about buying this rug.
I bought 3 of these rugs for my bedroom. The color is perfect! The leather is firm at first, overtime the leather becomes much softer and is easy to walk on. Everyone loves the look and is always asking when I get them from. One tip, do not drag your feet on these rugs as leather pieces may become loose from time to time otherwise, I am very happy with this product....
Rugs add a contemporary touch to your decor. They feel and smell rich:) great artistic approach to recycle leather. The shedding stops after a few days of use- the leather starts to soften after use. As others mentioned dogs thinks they are one big raw hide treat so spray with something bitter for awhile.
Adds much texture to my hardwood floors, absolutely love it! Did have a few strips come off when first opened but not a problem, could have been just extras that never got attached. Careful if ordering different sizes and shapes that the colors match, I ordered a round one as well and the leather is darker in color.
This is an inexpensive rug! It sheds a little at first but I expected that from reading other reviews. I had a small area that needed some texture and it looks perfect there. I wouldn't put it in a high traffic area because it is probably a trip hazard.
Don't be fulled by the inexpensive cost. This rug is a beauty! Looks fantastic in the kitchen by my sink. Over the dark hardwood floors it is rustic and warm. Contrary to other reviews, there wasn't any pieces lost when shaken, and the "smell" everyone has complained about is the smell of leather. It's a leather rug, therefore it smells like leather. You won't be dissapointed. Only one small issue... the rug is a bit thicker then what was there, so I have tripped over it a couple of times when dragging my feet. Liked this rug so much I bought two more yesterday. One for the area at my stove and a large round one for the foyer.

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. It wasn't expensive so i can live with it falling apart.
This rug does not look like the picture, nor is it as described. The leather strips are sparse, and you can see the rug backing underneath all over. The strips are really long none shorter than 4 inches and several have come off already. The color is good, and it is an interesting rug so I went ahead and gave it three stars even though I was pretty disappointed when I received it. The leather smell is very strong, which may or may not be a bad thing for you, but it should be noted your entire home will smell like a saddle!
I love the rugs that I ordered. They arrived timely. As described in other reviews, they did smell of leather (as they should) when I removed from wrapping. Although they do not fit the style of my master bathroom, they will be used in my laudry and entryway perfectly!
Well...I'm not using this as a rug - but have chosen it for a different purpose. I recently cut the top off of my older Entertainment center to be able to accomodate a new, larger TV. The top of this " remodeled" tv table was obviously scared up from the cutting of wood. This leather shag rug fits perfectly on top of my TV stand and looks GREAT! It's actually pretty cool !
