I'm very pleased with this ( our second) cowhide rug. Be aware that they are a natural product. The one I received was very cream and gray. I like it though and plan to purchase at least three more for other areas in our home. The texture is simply delightful. The hide is very well tanned and is a beautiful product . I received them shipped quickly and I liked that they did not use an oversize box, so the rug didn't shift a lot inside the box while in transit. As an interior designer (retired) I can tell you this is very very well priced and a terrific product. I highly recommend.
