I just received this rug yesterday. It has that leather smell which I expect to disappear in a day or two. When I unrolled the rug, a few loose leather strips fell out, but it looks like I can easily tie them back into the rug base. The biggest difference from the photo is that the leather strips are all of quite varying lengths; you can reallly tell that they are scraps as opposed to consistent straps cut for the purpose of this rug. I bought this rug for a high traffic area (right in front of my sectional sofa) and it's sitting on ceramic tile flooring. Being leather, I expect it will be very durable. The colors of the leather strips will easily disguise stains and even small toys, which was my 2nd goal. It's an interesting feel to walk on barefoot. The rug is a bit larger than the 8X10 quoted. It's not something that one would be able to run a vacuum over; perhaps a shop vac or other vacuum attachments, but I expect that I will be able to shake it out to some degree. It's an 8x10 rug for $$$ so I am confident to report that it's worth the money, but it's not a high quality product, but it is a very unique looking rug.
