This rug arrived as scheduled and was very well packed. There was no odor as some other reviewers had mentioned. There has not been much product shedding. The quality of the rug is very good and there are no bald patches. There are plenty of shag strips and the rug is 'full' and substantial. The colors of the rug (I purchased the beige one) are subtle and soft. There are yellow-beige and taupe-beige strips mixed with a slightly darker, light mocha-colored shag strips. It is perfect. The leather shag is soft, almost a suede-like quality rather than strips of a heavier, thick leather. It adds a wonderful, unique texture to the room. Everyone comments on how different it is and how they've never seen a leather rug before. I'm very pleased with the accuracy of the rug details and picture on Overstock.com. I would definitely recommend this rug.
