Cowhides are best used in domestic home environments. You can use the rug in your home’s indoor entranceway but it will show wear more quickly. The sun takes its toll on all furnishings fabrics, we recommend keeping the dyed and printed hides out of direct sunlight to avoid any possible fading.
We advise you not to put your cowhide in the washer, immerse it in water or have it dry cleaned. Remove solid messes or spills with a solid edged spatula or utensil and blot or wipe away the rest. You can wipe cowhides smoothly in the direction of the hair with a damp (but not wet) cloth with mild soap (non alkaline like shampoo) and water.
Include your cowhide rug in your normal cleaning routine, simply vacuum or give rugs a shake outside to remove dust and small dry particles of dirt.
Brushing with a hard plastic brush helps keep the hair soft and fluffy and helps remove dirt. Keep cowhides in a dry place especially after cleaning.
