Nature Made Rugs
Cow Skin Rugs are Hardwearing
These rugs will last a very long time. They are used to a great deal of wear and tear and will tolerate a great deal of rough use. These rugs can be used in a number of different places around the home because they take longer to wear out than other types of rug. They will outlast their rubber-backed friends and they are much easier to clean. Simply use a damp, not wet, sponge, as this is animal hide and fur. Brush the rug in the direction of the hair to keep it fresh. If it does get wet, dry it immediately to avoid any damage to the rug. You’ll have your decorative rug for a very long time with the proper care and cleaning. As you replace or throw out your other rugs, your cow skin rug will stay in place year after year.
Cow Hide Rugs are Hypoallergenic
Dust and pet fur gets caught in rugs, where it can rise again and stir up serious allergies. Cow hide rugs don’t hold down allergens as well, which makes them a hypoallergenic carpet. The hide of the cow is thicker than other materials so it doesn’t need as much insulation, which is also an allergy trigger. The cow skin decorative rug is guaranteed to keep your family healthier than the standard, man made rugs.
Getting Back to Nature
Some people who use cow skin hides for decorative purposes are making a statement about the wastefulness of the meat industry. Cows are not typically raised for their hides, but for their meat. When you purchase a cow skin rug, you’re buying something that would typically go to waste. The cow is going to serve as a source of meat anyway – it only makes sense to use the hide for warmth and comfort. We would not be the first society to do this and we shouldn’t be the last. There is no reason why the hides should be thrown away when they can be further put to service.
