These are turquoise dyed acid washed rugs with a natural background. The only part of the rug that gets dyed is the little spots that have been acid washed and the back of the cowhide. The hair-on part does not lose its original coloration. Many of the clients who buy these cowhides from us actually use them to make chaps or handbags. Turquoise is a very popular color and we also offer cowhides in Turqupoise metallic. The metallic ones we have in 2 sizes (5X5 and 6X7 feet) as well as some on off-white background, some of a dark brown background and others on natural backgrounds.
