HAND-STITCHED COWHIDE / LEATHER RUGS, FURNITURE + ACCESSORIES — MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA
Q: what care do I need to take with the product?
A: most leathers are pretty hardwearing and, with a little care and attention, will remain pristine for ages — indeed, even a pale cowhide rug can be eternally spotless
Q: How do I clean the leathers?
A: cowhide repels virtually all stains and is totally fade-resistant. any spills can simply be wiped up with a damp cloth. a good brush or vacuuming on a light suction-setting is generally all it needs. use a mild alcohol solution on stubborn stains such as grease or ink
if possible, spring-clean any rug by occasionally beating or shaking it outdoors
upholstery leathers need no more than a gentle rub with a damp cloth when necessary
Q: how best do I transport a rug?
A: roll the rug with it's leather-side facing out. the roll can be as tight as possible – the rug will always flatten out quickly enough
