Styled by artists and architects, handmade by leather artisans


COWHIDERUGS.NET.AU was born in Melbourne, Australia when realised there was a gap in the market for Designer Cowhide Rugs. We always admired the way architects and interior designers from the beginning of modernism were using cowhides as rugs, bringing a touch of warmth and eclecticism to their spaces. It was always difficult to find the hides; sometimes you could randomly run into an empty corner lot with hides for sale hanging from a fence with no idea where they originated, otherwise you could search online and find website's selling cowhides and also selling everything else under the sun. So our idea was to start the first real Designer Cowhide Rug brand, and we call it COWHIDERUGS.NET.AU. First we needed quality hides so we went back to Brazil, A country with a long-standing tradition of producing the best leathers worldwide. Then we partnered with the most skilled leather artisan. All COWHIDERUGS.NET.AU rugs are handmade in Rio Grande in Brazil. Adding our design aesthetics and our quest for quality, no detail is left behind. From the softest most luxurious materials, the perfection of stitching, to the harmony of colors and patterns, we are confident that our rugs are superior in quality and style than any other in the world. We are proud of our products and strive to keep our prices as competitive as possible, believing everyone deserves the luxury of something so soft and natural as a Cowhide Rug.

Patchwork Cowhide Rugs

Designed by architects and crafted by artisans, cowhide rugs are fabricated with 100% natural material. They are geometric and dynamic in their design to elevate your senses. We start with a selection of the best cowhides from the Pampas Grasslands in Brazil. Then each Patchwork Cowhide Rug is individually hand crafted to the scale of the pattern and assembled with a high resistant cotton ribbon. The rugs are finished with a perfect zigzag stitching or blind stitching detail. All cowhides are natural, with a backing stitched and glued to enable great wearing and a level surface. The reverse side of the rug is cotton material that absorbs moisture if laying on damp floors. The characteristics of cowhide combined with our quality makes these Patchwork rugs naturally stain repellant and extremely durable.
