Since the dawn of time when man first inhabited the earth animal hides have been a key feature for warmth and protection. Pre-historic man would have made clothing and adorned their caves with animal hides and skins to protect them from the elements. Long before the dawn of weaving and cloth making the animal hide would be the natural choice.
Many American Indians used animal hides to build tepees and wigwams. The Arctic Inuit also used hides to make waterproof clothes and kayaks. The hide was a key part of their civilisation and traded as an essential commodity.
Today cow hide rugs and other animal hides are making a dramatic comeback as the must have home accessory. As a by-product of the meat industry none of our hide rugs at City Cows , hide footstools or reindeer hides are killed for the hide alone. We should bear in mind these hide products would be thrown away if there a market had not developed. If you can buy leather shoes without guilt then you can also buy a cow hide product.
So whether your home is 21st century ‘chrome and wood chic’ or a more traditional Victorian terrace, a cow hide rug will make a stunning centre piece feature for your home.
