There are a few primary types of cowhide rugs, and within each category there are several types, colors, and even shapes.
Primary categories of cowhide rugs:
• Natural Color
Patchwork cowhides. The most exciting things coming out in hide flooring are some of the patchwork options designers are creating. These are no longer simply stitched patchwork squares, but unique patterns and combinations, from herringbone, to chevron, to running bond. The craftsmanship is gorgeous, and the styling can be incredibly creative.
Remember, unless you go the faux hide route, cowhides are a natural product. No hide is the same. If you plan to purchase a hide online or by catalog, be aware that not all hides will look the same as the product shots. Many hide websites have a catalog of images where they have photographed every single hide, so you are able to see the exact hide you are purchasing.
