FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

We often feature pictures of the actual cowhide rug you will receive. Those are the cowhide rugs under which we write the cowhide's individual size. If the picture does not display the size it it because that is a generic picture. We will try to match hides that look as similar as possible to the generic color categories. Please expect some difference between the pictures on the site and the ones actually shipped. Since cowhides are a natural product, color patterns are never identical and sizes vary from animal to animal.
Additionally, please understand that due to the fact that these are natural animal skins they will have occasional marks, fire brands, and scrapes. These blemishes are not defects but simple scars that add to the natural characteristic of these rugs.
Our cowhides are chrome tanned using methods improved by the Brazilian tanneries over time which yield the best quality in the industry. Our cowhide rugs do not have a strong odor or the thin substance of hides tanned in Argentina or elsewhere.
Up keeping of hair-on hides is simple and hassle free. Vacuuming can be done from time to time to remove dust and loose hair. In case of any spillage on the hide, wiping with a wet cloth should do the job. In case of very humid environments, it is recommended to lay the hide out in the sun once or twice a month.
A cowhide rug is a byproduct of the meat industry. No cow is harvested solely for the hide so by trading in cowhides we are only making use of secondary part of an animal that was raised for its meat. Our African animal skins are also taken legally and imported with all necessary documentation. None of the African animals are endangered species and some are actually harvested in culling events where over-populations need to be thinned.

Special Terms/Glossary:


Calfskin is a leather or membrane produced from the hide of a calf. Calfskin is particularly valuable because of its softness, and non fine grain. It is commonly used for high-quality shoes, wallets and similar products, as well as traditional leather bookbindings. In Spanish, the word is "Novillo", referring to leather from animals less than three years old. Do not machine wash or dry clean. Shake outside to remove dust and dry particles. Size varies but average is around 2 1/2' X 1 1/2'
