    Taking a stylistic cue from the animal kingdom itself, and using a blend of faux fur and animal hide, this rug blends modern styling with a rugged aesthetic and is designed to complement multiple color schemes. The rawhide rug is machine-woven, offering a strong, resilient weave that's ideal for even high-traffic areas.

    Features:
    • Made of faux fur, rawhide, synthetic fibers, and acrylic
    • Machine-made weave
    • Ivory and grey acrylic faux fur on rawhide base
    • Free-form shape for earthy, organic charm
    • Suitable for high-traffic areas
    • Latex-free pile

    Size Options:
    • Small: 3 feet 10 inches wide x 5 feet long x 0.3-inch pile height / weighs 2 lbs.
    • Medium: 5 feet wide x 6 feet 6 inches long x 0.3-inch pile height / weighs 3 lbs.
    • Large: 6 feet 2 inches wide x 8 feet long x 0.3-inch pile height / weighs 5 lbs.


    Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.

    All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

      First off, if you want a real cowhide, go buy a REAL cowhide. This is meant to share the aesthetic as best as possible. Even the best fake leather doesn't feel like real leather, that's the same case here. Now that being said it's a great imitation. I have owned real cowhide before, and having pets, I won't do it again. It's not something that can be easily cleaned. This one is also bigger than what you can find in a real cowhide. Underfoot, it is fuzzier than a real hide, but visually, it doesn't look that much different than real fur, it just stands up a little taller. For my purposes--something with a low pile height and large surface area to go under the dining table, that I can slide chairs over, that won't give me a coronary if I spill something on it because it's not $400-$500-- it's perfect. The color pretty much matches the images. It's shedding a little bit, but since it's already a small amount, I am not worried that it will last.

      Option: 6'2 x 8' - grey

      This rug is well worth the money. It does NOT look as fake as people have said. I mean it's artificial, so get over it. I had a real hide rug a few years ago and it was awful. It was super thin and I had to be sure I conditioned it or there would be dandruff...they are more art than functional. Not only that but if you walk in the same spot too much the (coarse & irregular) hair falls out... This rug combines the best of both worlds. The colors are perfect, greys beiges some black and ivories, very neutral. Uniform hair and easy to lightly vacuum. Finally It's nice on my feet (hides will never be PLUSH tho) and it brings a high end flair with it.

    • The look without the cruelty. A+
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 6'2 x 8' - grey

      It's thin but I didn't have to put a non-slip pad, I have bought a few different colors of them for accents in areas that don't get a lot of traffic, as I don't think they would hold up too long under heavy traffic. But I'm a vegetarian & these really throw my guests off, because they look pretty authentic without close examination. I like them also because they are assymetrical & I get really bored with perfect squares and rectangles in my home décor. I used two slightly different ones in my bedroom and they really warmed it up, as well as to create a welcoming little niche in a large room without having hard 90 right angle edges. And, as usual with the stuff I'm reviewing, there's also the price factor which, if you want chic but are on a budget, these are doubly auspicious finds. But the bottom line for me is my title, The Look Without the Cruelty. It's so good to decorate without a guilty conscience.

      Love this rug! I was looking for a faux hide rug that was very flat so I could easily move a desk chair around and this rug was perfect. Colors are very true to what is shown. I have not had any shedding at all and it laid completely flat from the first day I put it down. Highly recommend!

      Love, love this purchase. The rug is a neutral grey. I placed it over a bigger rug in my living room and the look was beyond spectacular! It added dimension, texture and style! Would buy it all over again!

    • Love the rug — but the size is totally inaccurate

      Option: 6'2 x 8' - grey

      I just got this rug and I love it. However, the size is supposed to be 6'2 x 8'0... After measuring the size is actually 6x4 so it's about 2 feet off on length and width. Not sure if they just sent the wrong one or what, but it looks like a few others have said the same thing.

      Beautiful contemporary rug, exactly what we were looking for! Colors are accurate to photos, charcoal grey, white, a touch of brown in certain areas. Works great in my contemporary industrial living room!

      I was looking for a cow skin rug, and this was a great compromise. The coloring of it is perfect, unlike the unknown factor with a real skin. From a distance, it looks real, close up, it is nice as well. It is thin and will need a pad. It also needs to flatten out, after being rolled up on that tube.

      I just received the faux cowhide carpet for my husband's new bar space. I was excited to receive this because I had been looking for awhile on the perfect carpet for his vintage bar. I am impressed with the look and feel of this rug. It fits the rustic masculine motif he was going for and I'm happy with this purchase. The color is exactly as listed. It picks up tones of gray and beige which is perfect for the new floor we had put in (which had tones of gray and off white).... with the black bar stools I really like the look. It had no odor when I took it out of the package and it laid nice and flat on the floor. I'm glad I bought this from Overstock. The size is also perfect for the space. Highly recommend...

      Excellent quality. It's about as close to a real hide as can be. Adds warmth and a southwestern feel to my TV room. The rug wants to ripple a bit, but is getting flatter by the day. It's somewhat thin, but I like that it doesn't tend to cause tripping, especially for my elderly mother who easily walked over it with a cane yesterday.

      I've had to for 2 yrs now. You can tell it is faux but it looks great. It I need to wash it I take it out onto my driveway and scrub what may need it, house it off and dry out out in the sun.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "All of the rugs in our apartment need sound proof padding underneath. Is there anyway to get a pad under this rug?"

      • A:

        We would also recommend getting a rug pad around 6x9 and trimming it to fit under the shape of the rug. A second option, and what tends to be a popular decorating touch, is to layer two or three area rugs over each other at different angles. This look usually works best when you have a shaped rug on top.

    • Q:

      "My cat decided to use the bathroom on my rug, what's the best way to clean it in order to not ruin it?"

      • A:

        Professional cleaning is recommended. We recommend testing any cleaning agent in a small corner of rug first. It is also good to remember not to rub the fibers vigorously. Try to blot and rub in the direction the fibers lay. Also, please refer to the back label instructions for cleaning details.

    • Q:

      "Wondering if the feel to the touch is fake, realistic, soft.... How does it feel?"

      • A:

        Yes, this rug takes on the appearance and the feal of the real thing, in my opinion. It is a gorgeous rug. I have it in a 6 x 8 and a 3 x 5 and it looks amazing. I hope this helps?

    • Q:

      "Do you have this rug on the 6 x 8' size?"

      • A:

        We do not. https://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=Rawhide+Grey++Ivory+Rug&taxonomy=sto1&ralt=sto6,sto39,dep3&TID=AR:TRUE&searchtype=Header

      • A:

        Yes. Its a nice product.

    • Q:

      "Is this machine washable as some of the other brands of faux hide you sell are? I prefer this color but with 3 dogs and a young child, I need to be able to throw it in the washing machine, even if on gentle cycle."

      • A:

        This is not machine washable. For cleaning we recommend to clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean sponge or cloth. Vacuum carefully with out beater bar or with bar set on highest setting.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        color and price

      • A:

        I have wood grained tile plank floors in a mixture of grey,t taupe and ecru....this rug was perfect to blend into the austere look of my minimalist styled bedroom. The room needed a touch of warmth to it. It is placed in front of a Louis Phillippe bed and by the windows is a real cowhide bench. The room is quite large in dimensions and this gave it the right feeling. I do not like rugs (I had my entire home done in wood grained tile planks) and it makes it much cooler in the hot desert environment. However, this rug warms up the feeling of a loft-like space and my feet feel cozy when I walked upon it as the weather is cooling. I just got it today and I am quite pleased with the product. It is NOT the main attraction in my room, just a covering the works very well with my environment.. Yes - it is not REAL - yes - it does not pretend to be - but - it gives a trememndous subtle effect in a stark area. I happen to like it very much! I originally was going for a grey Tibetan lamb throw rug, but this is not as slippery and does not hold dust bunnies in it. It is a very lovely touch for a faux real price!

      • A:

        Liked the rug
