Cowskin rugs can be used for any floor in the home. Entrance halls, family rooms, dining rooms, and more. They’re perfect for high traffic areas because of their durability and their natural resistance to stains. Natural cow skin is thick and can stand up to lots of dirt and abuse. A nice cowhide rug can add a rustic, textured look to a room. They’re soft to the touch and feel great on bare feet.
Also, a cowskin rug can be dyed to match a room or piece of furniture. Those who own cow hides will see that they all have different textures and patterns and are simply a beautiful rug to own and will last for many years to come. They add warmth and character to just about any living area.
Most cowskin rugs come in brown and white, but black and white is also a popular color. Geometric patterns are also available, as well as patchwork and metallic finishes. The shape is usually not uniform, so the rug can be either placed in a large space as the main attraction, or in a smaller room as an area rug.
Having a cowhide rug is perfect if you live in a home with kids and pets. They’re easy to clean – just a slightly damp rag combined with a dash of shampoo should easily be able to rid your cow hide of most stains and spills. Chemical cleaners or strong household cleaners don’t mix well with anything made out of cow skin. When the cowhide is tanned, natural oils are added to keep it supple. Be sure to try and treat any spills, stains or wetness as soon as possible in order to preserve the natural oils. Regular care is simple and straightforward; the rug can be shaken off outside or swept with a broom without any damage done to the hide.
Cowhide rugs also have a natural beauty that will add an interesting look to any room. Their versatility is also great, because a cowhide can be used in a multitude of different ways. A cow hide can go from a rug to a wall hanging to a furniture throw. They are also great to use in different rooms in the house. Use them in your living room, dining room, kitchen or child’s bedroom. They’re also unique – no two rugs are exactly the same. Their color, shape and natural variations in markings make them a unique and natural addition to any home.
