Rugs & Kids - Match Made in Heaven!

We have previously written about why Art Hide's cowhide rugs are a brilliant kid-friendly flooring solution. But we thought it was a good time to revisit this as we are asked frequently about cowhide's suitability for households with children.

We're here to tell you that cowhide is the perfect textile for homes with little people of all ages!

The founders of Art Hide, sister duo Bree and Kura, have 5 daughters between them. They've well and truly road tested Art Hide over the last nine years and are both firm believers in cowhide being the perfect child-friendly rug solution.

Let's revisit why Art Hide's cowskin rugs work so well with kids.

Cowhide is natural

Art Hide's rugs have natural oils within them which protects the rug. Any spills – whether it is juice, food or even playdough, will sit on the surface and will easily lift off with a slightly damp sponge or baby wipe. Art Hide's rugs also don't contain any nasty glues or anything unnatural within the rug.

Art Hide is hypoallergenic

Unlike wool which triggers allergies for so many people, or cheap synthetic rugs that trap dust and offer dust mites the perfect home; CowHide is both hypoallergenic and easy to clean!

It’s Low-Maintenance

Cowhide area rugs are so easy to maintain and keep clean. It is simply a case of using a dustpan and broom is wipe up any crumbs. Our cowskin rugs can also be taken outside to shake them off. The occasional vacuum is also fine too. No need for special dry cleaning!
