This wistful and romantic piece would not look out of place in either a vintage or contemporary interior, is digitally printed in England on a special fabric backed rubber which is the hand cut in to its final hide shape and is washable.
Medium 1200 x 1700 mm

"Renaissance" Cowhide Rug:
The Renaissance cowhide is unlike any cowhide you have ever seen, it's from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the fantasy world of designers Young & Battaglia. The piece features a background image created by artist Himitsuhana, overlayed with tufts of fur and hand cut out in a special rubber backed fabric. A fusion between art and utility, this rug will add a beautifully surreal touch to any interior, and unlike real cowhides this one is hypo-allergenic, washable, and will always lay flat.

"Persian" Cowhide rug:
The Persian Cowhide rug comes in other color options as well:
The Persian cowhide is unlike any cowhide you have ever seen, it's from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the fantasy world of designers Young & Battaglia. The piece is a playful and unexpected marriage between two of the most iconic rugs in the world. The meticulous and geometric Persian carpet is seamlessly combined with the natural irregularity of an animal skin rug. The design is made possible by digitally printing on to a special fabric backed rubber which is the hand cut in to its final hide shape.
