Looks exactly like a pile of fall leaves once they are dried...not beige, brown so it was too dark to use as desired. Also loses leather strips daily. Not a big deal there as it is quite plush and smells like saddle leather. Not practical to walk on either; it will trip you. As a WALL HANGING though, that is what I think it is really meant for as it is a nice artistic piece. Just don't think it is a rug. Cannot put it under a table as you cannot move chairs over it and it does not allow even a heavy table to sit perfectly steady.
