I was doing some research into how durable animal skin rugs are. I am thinking rugs with the hair/fur still on. It would appear from articles like this : http://www.ebay.com/gds/Advantages-to-Buying-a-Natural-Hide-Rug-/10000000179097213/g.html that I could expect a lot of life out of a rug. Is this an accurate assessment? Or, are there special precautions to take with animal rugs? I like them better on the floor than wall.
