Our beautiful and natural cowhide rugs are effortlessly easy to maintain. These rugs simply do not hold dust and dirt as other normal carpets and woven rugs do. All it requires is a frequent shake or vacuum, just being sure to clean it in the direction of the hairs. In the case of a spill, simply apply light pressure with a clean towel to soak up liquid and apply warm, soapy liquid to the affected area. Blot dry. Brush the hair in the direction of the follicles to keep it soft and lustrous. *Please do not beat the rug as this can cause damage* If treated with care, your new cowhide rug will last for many years.
