cow hide rug

Buying a new rug for the living room has somehow become a tradition in September, but this year’s rug is my favourite one yet.

After so many years of lusting after one, I finally have my own cowhide rug from Hide Rugs. I chose a black and white cow hide – mostly white, specifically because the living room doesn’t get much natural light so I thought if I had quite a light rug then hopefully it will help brighten the room up a bit and it’s certainly done the job well. Not only that, I needed a light rug that’s practical too since I have two dogs that go for daily rugs, and let’s face it, we live in Britain, most days their walks are muddy. I don’t let the dogs on the rug when they’re wet but they have definitely left a few marks on it this week, but luckily no problem it just brushes off. It’s so practical I’m so pleased with it. I’ve had it for a week now which means it has been walked on, has had the dogs walk/lie/play on it, it has been (gently) hoovered a few times – which I’m always a little nervous about with new rugs but it has held up perfectly. It is obviously of a high quality as it doesn’t seem to have lost any hair. As you can see, the rug has been a huge hit with the dogs  too – Bean (the frenchie) normally only sleeps on the sofa, but he’s taken a sudden liking to the floor with the new rug!

Please note that Hide Rugs are real cowhides however they are bi products of the meat industry. Cow hides are mostly used for leather, but a small percentage are left with the hair on and used as a floor rugs or to cover furniture.
