Research states that owners love their cowhide rugs due to their natural beauty, versatility, their hypoallergenic characteristics, easy maintenance and durability.

Benefits of Cowhide


  • Cowhide Rugs are not only suitable for on floors but can be hung on a wall or framed, an excellent centrepiece in any room and topic of conversation! Leather furniture can be accented perfectly by utilising the Cowhide as a throw, giving a rustic look.
  • Cowhides come in a variety of colours both natural, stencilled and dyed. If you are looking to make a statement, the solid dyed Cowhides would make an excellent choice!
  • Cowhides maintain their natural, soft and pliable feel and they can be tailor made in any colour to suit your home or office.


Our quality Cowhide Rugs are hypoallergenic and fragrance free. No need to be constantly vacuuming or cleaning the air in order to breath freely and peacefully.

Natural Beauty

With cowhides, each breed tends to have their own set of colours that distinguish them from others. Cowhides are each as unique as the person who owns them and they are one of a kind!


Cowhides are extremely durable – owners can enjoy them over a life time with just simple care.

  • Shake your cowhide rug once a week. It a good idea to take your cowhide outside and give it a vigorous shake on a regular basis and fresh air.
  • Vacuum carefully.
  • Clean with mild soap water and damp sponge.
  • Steam clean with little water.
  • Do Not dry clean or wash in a washing machine.

I would thoroughly recommend Connaught Hide and Wool to anybody. The advice given from the start was second to none and the product knowledge excellent.

I advised what my preference in a Hide would be and when it arrived (extremely quickly and efficiently by courier), it completely exceeded my expectations.

The hide holds pride of place in our home and we will admire it for years to come. 5 Star service and product.
