While this is a nice large rug for the price, it turned out to be different than what I expected. The woven leather and hemp looks much cheaper than I thought it would be. It's sort of a rough look, more like the $6 rag rugs at the big box stores. I am using it in our dining room, but in retrospect this wasn't a wise choice. The leather strips will make it difficult to clean food spills. The rug also has a fairly rough texture underfoot, and the fringe is pretty sparse. I wish I had been able to really zoom in on the photo to see what this rug looked like up close. I probably would not have purchased it if I had seen what this woven rug really looked like.
