They are extremely soft and comfortable
If you love relaxing at home and feeling comfortable, then you will love the softness of a cowhide rug. They are very durable, but they also feel silky and warm when you walk on them in bare feet. They can add a little bit of luxurious comfort to any room.
They look amazing
Cowhide rugs aren’t just functional, they look amazing too. They aren’t like ordinary rugs that people will simply walk over and ignore, they are really eye-catching and they become a focal point of a room.
They warm up cold floors
Cowhides look great on wood floors and they add a bit of warmth and colour to bare floors. They work equally well in a room with classic décor as they do in a room with a more contemporary feel to it. They also work really well as a wall hanging, to break up a large, bare wall.
They come in different colours
You can get real cowhides in a range of different patterns and colours, so you can choose one that will complement the existing décor in a room. They can vary from black and white, brown and white, to single colours, and each one has its own unique markings.
They are hypoallergenic
Rugs made of cow skin are hypoallergenic, so they won’t cause or aggravate allergies. They are 100% natural, so there are no artificial fibres that can get into the air, which is often the cause of allergies. Even if you don’t suffer with allergies yourself, visitors to your home who do will thank you for having a cow skin rug on the floor.
They are durable
These rugs are extremely durable too, which can be a big bonus if you have kids or pets. They are much more hard-wearing than synthetic rugs and are naturally stain resistant too. You can usually just wipe up spills from a cowhide rug with a damp cloth.
They are low maintenance
Despite the fact that they are soft and warm, there is no deep pile that hairs and debris can get entangled in. All you need to do to keep cowhide rugs clean and fresh is give them a good shake once a week.
