As is well known cowhide animal skins and cowhide skin accessories have made a storming comeback into the world of interior design and modern contemporary style choices. Cowhide skins have move on from being simply considered as a cowhide rug or carpet to become a decorative item in their own right and cowhide skins makes an elegant and funky throw for putting over furniture or for hanging on walls as a keynote feature piece.
Alongside the more traditional natural cowhides such as brindle or Holstein there has come a huge range of dyes and printed cowhides in a vast array of colours and designs.
At the pinnacle of this cowhide mountain which takes this wonderful naturally occurring material and turns it into an elegant art form is the cowhide patchwork hides. This is where a variety of different cowhide skins are carefully (often by hand) stitched together to create a multitude of pleasing patterns and designs.
The compelling texture and organic pattern that a cowhide rug or cowhide skin carpet adds to a room is taken to the next level when a cowhide skin patchwork rug is added into the design mix and by so doing adds an extra layer of graphic appeal to the already classic cowhide look.
Combined with dyed and coloured cowhide skins in a variety of symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes, textures and sizes. It can often be hard to believe that this is traditional cowhide as it lends to any space a really fresh and modern look.
