Cowhide skins as we well know from Cowhide Rugs UK Cowhide University is one of the most versatile and durable of naturally occurring materials. The animal hide protects the cow in the most hostile conditions during its life and once removed as a natural product of the meat processing industry the cowhide skin is tanned to fix the proteins and ensure it is eminently durable and capable of lasting a long time.
Cowhide skins make great rugs and carpets and can now be dyed and printed to satisfy most tastes and style choices. There is of course an additional way to extend the reach and beauty of the cowhide and that is to stitch together different textures and shapes of cowhide skin to create wonderful cowhide patchwork quilts. These can be objects of great beauty and with their delicate filigree work and stitching promote wonderment in those that can touch , feel and maybe if they are lucky own them.
To celebrate the wonderful world of the cowhide patchwork quilt we at Cowhide Rugs UK have written a special article – the Patchwork Cowhide Rug or Carpet over at our Cowhide University.
