Our Cowhide rugs are a beautiful addition to any room with character and style from modern to rustic. All our hair-on hides come from an organic cow. Cows are not grown and killed for the production of our cowhide rugs, only the byproducts of the meat industry are used to make our cowhide rugs. Each of our cowhides is finished with a professional high-quality tanning process to give every hide a shiny, clean, and soft feeling. Our natural hide rugs have been chosen individually to ensure longevity. None of our cowhides will shed or curl. This is one of a cowhide rug there are no two alike. You will receive the hide that is pictured.
