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

 

 

 

the component pieces that make up any rug come in a variety of shapes and, as such, determine the relevant pattern of the resulting hand-stitching across its surface

choose from three classic stitch designs: each design is made up from numerous identical shapes that tessellate to create several layout options and rugs of almost any size...

...or from three exclusive stitch designs: each a combination of two-or-more shapes often mosaics and pixels, as well as other unique configurations
