I am extremely fussy about the quality of hides and years ago purchased one from E- Bay that was a cheap quality disgrace, so it immediately went back!!! This is my second zebra print cow hide,…. My FIRST one I purchased years ago from a rug store and paid TWICE the price! The quality of this hide is absolutely superior and “butter soft”….. shipping was fast and the hide is the exact one pictured. I already have a solid colored one picked out to co-ordinate with the zebra one. You won’t be disappointed with this company!
