Cowhide rugs are interior pieces that complement any aesthetic. They consist of the skin and hair of a cow that’s cured using environmentally friendly tanning processes.
These rugs are easy to care for and require little maintenance, meaning no effort is required to make them stand out in American homes. The unique colours within the rug can be used to augment existing colour schemes or provide a focal point in a specific area of your home.
Their durability means they can be placed in any space, including high-traffic areas – such as hallways or near stairs and entry points. This makes cowhide rugs a worthwhile investment that combines form and function.

Why are cowhide rugs such a popular choice for US homes?
Cowhide rugs are popular in the United States for several reasons. As genuine animal skin products, cowhide rugs pay homage to America’s rural origins. This makes them a popular feature in country style homes throughout Texas, Virginia, Wyoming and other states dependent on agriculture.
Since no two animal hides are exactly alike, US homeowners are bound to receive a unique cowhide rug that serves as the ultimate conversation piece in any home. This combats the consumer mindset of mass production as every cowhide rug is different. They have been witnessed in the home of several celebrities – including Jennifer Aniston – and were featured in Elle Decor Magazine as a timeless home addition when it comes to transforming rooms.
The USA is a powerhouse when it comes to interior design and fashion brands, and nothing makes a bolder statement than a cowhide rug. They add a dramatic look to your home and come with endless design opportunities. You can choose cowhides with traditional black and white spots for a wester, vintage aesthetic, or you can opt for a dyed cowhide rug for more vibrant and sophisticated styles.

Can a cowhide rug get wet?
Accidents involving drinks will happen, but avoid soaking your cowhide rug as this can cause the rug to move out of shape as it dries. Cowskin rugs contain natural oils which wick away liquid, so spilt drinks will simply sit on the surface where they can easily be sponged away. Dab with a dry towel to dry off completely.
How long do cowhide rugs last?
When properly looked after, high-quality cowhide rugs can last for years and are meant to hold up to an active family with children, pets, and occasional spills. They are very easy to care for and maintain on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis. Make sure to follow our cleaning guide.

Can I vacuum a cowhide rug?
It is fine to occasionally vacuum your rug gently. Vacuum the rug in the direction of the hairs to prevent any unwanted hair loss. If you prefer, you can take your rug outside and shake it to remove any loose particles and dust.
What if my pet urinates on my cowhide rug?
Blotting pet urine, wine, juice, coffee, or tea to absorb the liquid and flushing with a damp cloth and gentle spot cleaning solution are essentially the only steps to follow for in-home spot cleaning your cowhide rug after a spill occurs.
Can you use a steamer on a cowhide rug?
Yes. When steaming the cowhide skin, place the flat iron over the cowhide, and direct steam jets straight at especially dirty spots. Use a damp cloth to wipe away the stain.
How do I prevent my cowhide rug from curling?
Use the following trick to tame a curling cowhide:
- Lightly mist the top and underneath of your cowhide with water.
- Place a towel underneath your cowhide and one on top of the curling piece.
- Pile up some of your heavy books on top of the curling piece and leave overnight.
Do cowhide rugs smell?
Cowhide is a natural leather product and will have a smell like any other leather product. When you buy a high-quality rug from Art Hide, it has already been carefully cleaned and treated and will not have any bad smell.
