Natural cowhide refers to the unbleached skin and hair of a cow. It retains the original coloring of the animal and is a byproduct of the meat industry. Cowhide can be used in its natural form or further processed into leather through tanning.


  1. Durability: Cowhide is known for its robustness and is highly resistant to wear and tear, making it suitable for furniture that will be used extensively.

  2. Unique Patterns: Every cowhide is unique with its own pattern, color variations, and natural markings. This uniqueness adds character and individuality to furniture pieces.

  3. Texture: The hair-on-hide texture provides a tactile experience that is distinct from other furniture materials. The surface can be soft and smooth, with the hair offering a layer of gentle comfort.

  4. Versatility: Cowhide can be a top choice for a variety of styles, including rustic, contemporary, and eclectic. It can be used in whole pieces for items like area rugs or cut and sewn for upholstery.

  5. Maintenance: It requires relatively low maintenance and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Since it's a natural fur, it repels most stains and doesn’t easily soak up spills.

Applications in Furniture

  1. Upholstery: Chairs, sofas, and ottomans are frequently upholstered with cowhide for a luxurious look and feel.
  2. Rugs: Large, uncut cowhides are commonly used as stunning and natural floor coverings.
  3. Accent Pieces: Cowhide can be used for smaller furniture items such as pillows, benches, or even wall hangings.
  4. Furnishings: Tables or storage boxes can feature cowhide as an inlay or covering for a touch of elegance.


Natural cowhide is a premium and resilient material suitable for a wide range of furniture applications. It offers beauty, durability, and a unique touch to any interior space. However, ethical and sustainability concerns should be closely considered when sourcing and using cowhide in furniture production.
