Caring for Cowhides
We often get asked how long a cowhide will last for. It all depends on the traffic area it is placed in and how you care for your product.
Some customers have told us about hides that have lasted for over ten years and are still as new.
The trick is to clean the dust that accumulates in your hide as it would in any rug on the floor.
Simple hand-brushing straightens out the hairs and at the same time removes grit or dust that may be trapped in the hide.
A damp cloth can be used to remove spills but please don’t wet the hide through. It is of course leather and wet leather is not good.
Hang it out to dry if you do accidentally soak it.
