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.
Nice one! I want to suggest a great website about decor and home design. There are really low prices cowhides and accesories. Also gives tips about how to clean and care Cowhide Rugs, Calf Hides and Skins
@#8 Then I must ask why one would pay $600 for a carpet remnant.
That’s just a shame. It’s like making wine cooler from 1973 Stag’s Leap Cab. Stupid.
Ceci n’est pas une peau de vache.
maybe the edges were burnt off
Mais heursement, une pipe c’est past toujous une pipe!
Vintage carpets are necessarily so great. And this rug is at least witty.

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.
hmmmm. not impressed somehow.
Oh, that is so handsome.
