Gorgeous dark brindle with grey dorsal line cowhide rug! We ship UPS ground from upstate NY. Please see all attached pictures. Occasional irregularities, little scars, fire brands and small patches are due to leather's natural finish and should be regarded as a quality feature while also underlining its natural origin. Also, due to the tanning and metallic foil, sometimes the hides will display a smell which will dissipate after a few days of being open. It is like a new car smell, it goes away after a few weeks. Some of our clients who are either more sensitive to smell or just cannot wait for it to air out have used Febreze to neutralize the smell with great success.
