This is a beautiful glossy black hide with white markings. Cowhides are not commonly seen in black and white with these markings.
All our cowhides are sustainable and eco-friendly, which have been ethically sourced and with practices of good animal husbandry
Please note - all creases fall out fairly quickly when the hide is laid flat
The hide pictured is the hide you will receive, new and unused.
Our hides are selected for their colour, shine, and beautiful appearance.
We only select hides that have been through the best tanneries and use the chromium tanning method.
Our Cowhide Rugs are Very Supple
The leather of our cowhide rugs is very supple, unlike cowhides from most other countries that can actually be quite stiff in comparison.
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. Most countries do not tan their cow hides this way. Even when a chromium tanning process is used, often 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, its merely a tool to ensure longevity and strength.
No Unpleasant Tanning Odors
None of our cowhide rugs have an unpleasant smell from tanning solutions that is so often present in other cowhides. Our hides have a pleasant leather scent.
In some of the images, due to the image light and lustre of the hide it may appear as though there is a slight haze on the hide. This is purely down to the image.
100% genuine cowhide.
