​Top Benefits of Investing in Genuine Cowhide Rugs

Posted by The City Cows Team on 23rd Nov 2018

It should not come as a surprise that genuine cowhide rugs have become a favourite of interior designers worldwide over the past ten years. An authentic cowhide rug is the perfect item with which to add a practical and decorative touch to one or more rooms in your home. The following are just a few of the multiple benefits associated with investing in these unique and luxurious rugs:

High Level of Versatility

If you are at all familiar with cowhide rugs, you likely know that their versatility is exceptional. This is because their natural, neutral shades blend in easily with the existing decor and colour scheme of essentially any home. For this reason, regardless of whether your home's interior design is rustic, abstract, modern or traditional, an authentic cowhide rug is an ideal item to use in any area of your dwelling that is in need of some style and flair.

Natural Markings Colours

If you are shopping for a rug that features natural colours and patterns, you will be very happy with what you find at Each rug we offer to our customers is completely unique and boasts its own natural markings and designs. This is because each one is made from genuine cowhide, and therefore no two are exactly alike. You can choose from a broad range of colours and patterns, such as brown and white, black and white, gray, brindle, pale and even patchwork. Regardless of what you have in mind, we have a colour and size that works for you.

Longevity and Durability

Rugs made from genuine cowhides are notably durable and last for many years. Traditional rugs made from synthetic materials quickly wear down and usually require replacement in three to five year increments. However, rugs made from genuine cow skin last for decades without complicated maintenance. Therefore, if you are looking for a rug that offers outstanding longevity, but also makes a beautiful, bold statement in your home, you should definitely consider an authentic cowhide rug.

Added Texture

If you are like most shoppers, you would likely agree that traditional textiles are not particularly interesting or unusual. However, cow skin rugs have a unique and impressive texture that will be the envy of anyone who visits your home.


Nothing can compete with the warmth offered by authentic rugs of this kind, especially when it is cold outside. Such rugs quickly combat chilly drafts in your dwelling, and provide a warm, luxurious place to rest your feet. Traditional materials simply cannot block drafts the way that genuine animal skins can. Ultimately, you will likely find yourself pleasantly surprised at the considerable difference cowhide rugs make with regard to winter drafts in your home.

Easy Maintenance

If you do not have a lot of time to devote to cleaning the carpets in your home, cowhide rugs over hardwood floors may be just the combination for which you are looking. Cow skin is very easy to maintain, and rugs made from this genuine animal skin hold up well in high traffic areas. Other than immediately removing stains and spills and vacuuming the rug, no other special maintenance is required.
