Cowhide rug made out of vintage carpet

New Zealand's Catherine David Designs sells these "cowhide rugs" made by cutting vintage carpets into the shape of a cowhide. They also do sheepskins. Link (via Cribcandy)


  1. It’s like making wine cooler from 1973 Stag’s Leap Cab.

    It’s not cut from a hand-knotted tribal rug. Axminster is just quality woven carpet, and vintage could mean anything. I’m guessing that these are factory remnants or unworn sections of old carpet from hotels or theaters. That pattern certainly looks like a hotel lobby.

  2. Y’know…if these rugs didn’t come with the “cowhide” reference already attached, I don’t think I would have made the connection. They look more like someone “spilled” a rug on the floor.
