"Why did you choose this product?"
I own several of these rugs and plan to buy more (if that tells you anything)! Be aware, the color is a combination of off-whites and greys mainly with some tan/cream sometimes (they vary from one to the next). In the larger sizes (even the 4 X 6), they stay put pretty well (needed no pad). It's a real flat rug, and the surface isn't too comfy for sitting on (even with a pad, for it's uneven/not smooth), but doesn't bother my bare feet walking on it. But I love it's unique beauty!...

looks great, but, now I wonder if it isn't made from dogs????Read More
I have had this rug for a while in my living room. It has received a lot of love. Overall has held up very well. Occasionally I need to tuck a piece of leather back under a loop. Also, when first receiving rug and opening it up it had a very strong smell that eventually disappeared.Read More
The rug is very thin and looks very casual.Read More
The rug is exactly as pictured - a mix of white and gray strips flat-woven together. I read some other reviews that said it is not all that comfortable to walk on so I was concerned that the leather strips where prickly or something. Nope, they are as "soft" as leather can be and similar in comfort to other flat weave rugs I have. One thing that was odd was that the rug came folded in thirds and then rolled up so now there are folds in the rug. I assume these will calm down in a few days but just be aware. And, yes, this rug does have a smell when you unpackage it (kind of a chemically leather smell) but I have purchased other rugs that have had an odor and it has gone away in a few days.Read More
This size rug for the price is a great deal on it's own. Bought 2 with plans to sew them together for our livingroom. Heavy smell of leather, but I love the smell so it is okay. Very soft, hopefully will hold up for a long timeRead More
Awesome unique rug. Eyed it for months then took the plunge when sale on area rugs started. Bought 2 to go in a large living room. I have all contemporary white leather furniture and minimalist style. This rug was perfect to tie it all together. The white strips pick up the white furniture. The grey strips cool down the room as a neutral backdrop. The neutral natural binding on 2 ends and interspersed throughout the rug picks up wall neutral color. I've gotten so many compliments on how chic and expensive it looks. It didn't look like much folded up out of the packing but I tried it anyways and it reads fabulous in the room. Give it a chance for unique high style. Haven't vacuumed yet but will probably not use brush. 4 dogs and it has stood the test so far after couple if months. I love it!Read More
The good: Great price for a large leather rug. The colors are a good mix of white and soft grays and are well distributed in the rug. This rug could work for a large range of decorating styles from country all the way thru modern. It's completely reversible so in the event you need to cover something up, just flip it! It would be great for a sunroom I'd imagine. The bad: The rug I received came with light blue (from what looked like a blue highlighter pen) marks on some of the white leather pieces. There were visible marks on both sides and I wasn't keen on putting furniture in odd places to conceal them. I did not try to remove these marks myself, so I'm not sure if rubbing alcohol or something like that would just clean them right up. I also would only put this rug somewhere where people aren't typically barefoot since the uneven texture isn't particularly comfortable.Read More
I took a chance on ordering this rug because the previous reviews were so mixed. I have to say that I am very pleasantly surprised by what a nice rug it turned out to be. For such a large sized rug you really can't beat the price! The rug is made of different strips and remnants of leather and cotton fabric. It is a mix of white, beige, and gray. I didn't have any kind of green strips in mine like someone previously mentioned. I have greige painted walls and white trim and it goes really well. I think this rug would go with a lot of different decor. It is a unique rug. I placed it in my dining room and it looks really nice. I found a similar rug made of "recycled leather" on a design site for a ridiculous amount of money. It is not a very soft rug and I probably wouldn't want it in my bedroom, but it is perfect in a dining room or living room. The only bad thing was that it had a very strong smell when it first arrived. It took a couple of weeks for it to fade away. I would highly recommend this rug if you need something large that will help warm up a space.Read More
I've had this rug for a few months now. I get a lot of compliments from visitors. The color compares to my monitor on my computer in person. I would not say this is white though. I have warm grey walls with dark wood floors and this looks great. The rug has grey,white and off white strips of leather. It works wonderful with my light grey neutral color scheme. I would say the grey is a neutral grey. It could go with many styles of decor. I thought this rug was a great value for the price. The leather looks like its scrap pieces put together. My only complaint is that there is some green shiny strips sewn into the rug. Its small but does bother me a bit so thats why I only gave it four stars but it wasn't major enough to worry about sending back. I have used my vacuum with and without the beater brush on it. I still haven't figured out which way is best. So far its held up to four kids and two dogs. I'm happy with it. I love the texture it brings to the room. Its nice and bright too.Read More

"Is this rug formal enough for a dining room? When I zoom, it looks like the old rag strip rugs which seems pretty casual. Perhaps it's more elegant in person. My style is transitional. Thanks!"
Hello jdrh95, this rug is more of a casual style rug. Thank you for shopping with us!
"How do you clean this rug? What is woven into this carpet?"
This is all made of woven straps of leather and can be cleaned by 1 Take your rug outside and shake it out--this is a fast way to get rid of loose dust that's gathered on it due to foot traffic or miscellaneous loose dust in the room. Once you've done that, bring the rug inside. 2 Mix water and a mild, natural soap into a bowl or a bucket, depending on the size of your rug. If the manufacturer of the leather doesn't recommend cleaning with soap and water, use a foam-based leather cleaner. 3 Dip a rag into the cleaning mixture and wipe softly in a circular pattern. 4 Wipe away any excess residue from the soap or foam with a second rag dipped in clean water and wrung for excess moisture. 5 Blot the rug dry using soft towels weighed down with heavy objects. A book will do the job nicely. This will reduce the possibility of scratching or color damage from any cleaner you haven't wiped away. If the rug is still moist after you've blotted it, allow it to air dry. 6 Apply a leather conditioner to keep the fabric supple and restore its luster.
