What are the benefits of a genuine cowhide rug?

At Art Hide, we believe that there is no end to the benefits of genuine cowhide rugs. As they are increasingly becoming on-trend, we have compiled this small blog post detailing some of our favourite things about genuine cowhide rugs.

1. They are environmentally friendly and sustainably sourced

It is a widespread misconception that animal print, the fashion industry and animal cruelty are all synonymous. However, at Art Hide, this simply isn’t the case. Be it a genuine cowhide rug from Perth, Melbourne, or Sydney, each skin used in our designs is environmentally friendly and sustainably sourced. This is something incredibly important to us. We make sure that our rugs are ethically made from the by-products of a cow that has already been farmed for its beef. This ensures that no animal is killed purely for its coat.

2. Genuine cowhide rugs are hypoallergenic

If you suffer from allergies, you probably believe it's impossible to find true, authentic animal pieces that can be incorporated into your décor. However, this doesn't have to be the case! Genuine cowhide rugs are hypoallergenic, which makes them a great addition to your home. This is because the hair follicles the rug is made from are not tightly woven together, so it's much harder for dust mites that aggravate your allergies to become trapped inside.

3. Authentic cowhide rugs are made to last

No, we don’t just mean this figuratively in a ‘style that will never run out’ kind of way. We also mean this in a practical way. At Art Hide, our rugs are made using premium Clariant of Germany dyes. This means that despite the wear and tear they will undoubtedly face as a feature piece within your home, the colour and life of your rug will never fade. This is true for each hue our rugs come in, be this cream or gold.
