These beautiful rugs are sourced from the highest quality hides found in Argentina. This design is a modern re-interpretation of a noble material. Perfect for softening any room and particularly functional when you want a rectangular hide. To make this piece, 3"x5" rectangles are stitched inside 6"x8" rectangles creating an interesting texture and pattern. There is a small amount of cushioning between the front and the backing. Easily cleaned -- vacuum periodically and use soap and water for spills. Stain resistant. Rug pad recommended on hard floors.
