All About Cowhides
Posted by on
We have supplied thousands of cowhides to many happy customers all over Australia since starting this business.The styles being purchased have changed in that time and we know the product ends up in almost every room of the home from lounges,dining rooms & nurseries.
Colour choice has moved towards the lighter colour hides and grey has become a constant favourite.
Black & White & Brown & White are still strong as they are classics.We have seen many variations on the patchwork come into the market and the degree of design in the rugs has improved.If you are selecting a rug for your home,size is the first consideration and then of course colour.The old trick of using a newspaper as a cutout to give you an idea of size still works well and you can see the actual space the hide will occupy.Colour is detremined by lighting and of course what is in the room already.If you are adventurous we have the Salt& pepper styles amd if you want to be more subdued there are the plain colours like Mocha and Light grey that tone in with many different styles of home.Whatever you select will last you for years and we hope we can supply your needs.

We started out selling cowhides just on ten years ago before they really came back into fashion.Our major business was always timber furniture and we needed some way to soften the look of the store which was various shades of brown timber tables and pieces. What better way then a cowhide rug? We had tried real wool [...]
