All our hides are hand picked from hundreds. They are selected for their colour, shine, and overall appearance.
We believe it is better to know that the picture you see is the EXACT hide you will receive.
We only select hides that have been through the very best tanneries and use the chromium tanning method.
Cowhide Rugs are Very Supple
The leather of every one of our cowhide rugs is very supple, unlike cowhides from most other countries that can actually be quite stiff in comparison. Every country manufactures cowhide rugs. However most of these pale in quality, both in longevity and suppleness, as compared to those from South America.
The Best Quality Cowhides are Chromium Tanned
Chromium tanning has long been known to produce the best tanned cowhide rug. Chromium tanning is extremely high tech and expensive. As a result, most countries do not tan their cow hides this way. Even when a chromium tanning process is used, often times the results are unsatisfactory since it is such a difficult process as compared to more conventional forms of tanning.
During the tanning process, it may be necessary to put some suede backing on small areas of the rug. This is not a flaw in the hide merely a tool to ensure longevity and strength. All hides are considered "premium" grade.
