HAND-STITCHED COWHIDE / LEATHER RUGS, FURNITURE + ACCESSORIES — MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Q: can the designs be
calculated in **square feet** rather than in square meters?

A: as the individual component pieces all have metric measurements — and these then go into making the whole — all dimensions must ultimately be calculated in centimetres & square meters

Q: can the metric measurement
be **converted to imperial**?

A: yes,
there are simple formulas, but a request for a rug measuring, say, 6 feet by 9
feet will still only be as close as possible, in this case 180 cm by 270 cm,
which translates to approximately 5’10^{3}/4”
by 8’10^{1}/4”

Q: what are these **formulas**?

A: in calculating length, there are 25.4 millimetres / 2.54 centimetres to 1 inch; for area calculations, 1 square meter equals 10.764 square feet
