Being classic makes Cowhide Rugs unbeatable and they are not going out of style anytime soon, most likely never.
Several years ago cowhide rugs were mostly seen in homes decorated in a rustic, western or country style themes.
Nowadays, if you prefer more traditional designing, chic, sheik or rustic then a new cowhide rug is the best option - if you're looking for something different from the mundane synthetic area rugs.
Being so easy to clean, along with their versatility and durability, cowhide rugs have become a favorite for busy family's with kids and pets as well as interior designers in every fashion!
Cowhides also make popular wall hangings as well as being very popular for upholstery.
They are available in several patterns, sizes and colors so there is something for everyone!
There is a wide range of pricing. Do some research before purchasing your first cowhide. Different tanneries turn out different quality hides. Make sure you get the one that fits your lifestyle, decor theme, price range and of course what kind of durability you are going to need.

I agree with what you say about doing some research before purchasing your first cowhide. I had wanted a hide for years! I knew nothing about them. Was told to go with Brazilian. I bought what I would say was a mid-priced rug ($220) and I wasn’t overly impressed but I didn’t know any difference really. A year later I did some research on them and decided to go with a hand-picked hide so I knew exactly what look I was getting (online) but was still unsure of the quality. At that point I figured all Brazilian hides were the same. Not true! I paid almost $800 for the the color/pattern I wanted but the rug is totally different from my first one. It is absolutely stunning! You can see that the tannery that did this Brazilian compared to the tannery that did my first Brazilian was a much higher-end manufacturer. I figured that they all had a smell but this one had zero smell, laid flat after a couple of days. No thinning of hide, every part of it was an even thickness. It is a stunning piece. I will continue to purchase from the same company because now that I know the difference in quality of hides, I’m not taking a chance on anything else!
