This really is an awesome looking rug but I would place it where you don't have much traffic as the strands do tend to come off easily. Not really a big problem because it is so thick.Read More
Bought this for an entry way/mud room that gets heavy traffic. It's a very unique style and the leather smells wonderful. It's practical in that people can come and go and it doesn't show dirt. Just shake it outside once a week..no vacuuming!Read More
These leather shag rugs are absolutely fun and trendy. Two problems with them. 1) When the arrived they need to be aired out as the SMELL BAD. I aired mine for 28 days in an enclosed outdoor porch. The still have an odor, but my sisters assure me it will disappear. 2) They shed pieces of leather. I have only had mine for 3 weeks (still in air out mode) and whenever I pick the rug up, pieces of leather fall off of it. I haven't used the rugs yet, so I'm not sure if the fall off will continue or worsen.Read More
Fringes made it bigger than the advertised size, not a real issue though. Several loose flaps of leather flew out when opening/spreading the runner. but seems to be a one-time occurrence. Strong smell of treated leather when new, but it wears off within a week to 10 days. After cleaning up extra bits of leather that were rolled up in it, and waiting for the new leather smell to disperse, it seems like good value for money.Read More
Looks good but the knots throughout the rug make it impossible to comfortably walk on.Read More
I saw a rug like this in a model home and have wanted one forever. I bought 2 runners to put in front of each couch in our family room. It kinda made the room look messy with both so now I am using one behind the couch, you can see it when you enter the house and I really like it there. I have had a few compliments, my husband hates it and my Aunt thought it was a new potty pad for the dog =(. I still like it.Read More
The leather strips are all poorly cut and just fall out of the rug's backing(?). Even at first glance u can tell that this rug is extremely cheaply made. There are also "other" pieces of fabric accidentally (?) added in. One was hot pink. Seriously, don't buy this rug, you'll be very disappointed. ThanksRead More
This is a great runner but it didn't fit under the door where i was going to put it.I had to find another home for it but it looks goodRead More
I love it., I bought it for a wall hanging., and it works like a charm., living in Colorado., it match's the deco here. Also, would work for a traffic area., I bought the brown., so it would look authenic so either way., you will like it., IT IS NOT SOFT., so beware, if you are using it for a bedroom., it would be kinda rough., so try it and see what you think. I had priced one on another site., and it was much higher $$., so I am happy, with my purchase. Might even get one of the lighter colors for a downstairs bathroom., as it has a lot of traffic., coming in from the outdoors., and it would work., really well, there., still thinking about that one. enjoy!!!!Read More
I wanted to love this rug because of its uniqueness, but it wasn't tied uniform strips of leather, but scraps of various leather scraps with some more than a foot in length and one that was red. I asked my family of 4 to vote on whether to keep it or not, but after everyone else voted not to keep the rug, I returned it. It was also uncomfortable when standing on it. It would work fine under a coffee table.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello janwms, we appreciate your inquiry. The rug has a stitched edge and we do not recommend cutting it. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!
No. The rug is stitched at each end and cutting the rug would cause leather to unravel.
How do you remove the odor - it is so bad we cannot keep it in the house - I have it on a back porch hoping the odor will go away soon. Any hints????
Thank you for your question and I apologize for the frustration you've experienced. It sounds like you're already on the right track. Airing it out is the best thing you can do. Most likely what you're smelling is the remains of the tannins. It will require time; outdoors is best (more air circulation).
How do you clean this rug?
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. It is very important that you never use chemicals on your leather shag rug.
How to Size Your Room For an Area Rug
A rug in the right size can complement the whole room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull room, or make a subtle statement. However, if it's too big or too small, it may leave the impression of an unfinished or poorly decorated room. Before you start shopping for area rugs, you'll want to size the room. This guide will help you to select the right size rug in any room.
