Cowhide Humor

Being in the cowhide rug industry, you could probably guess that we have great cowhide radar. If there's an article, a website, or a magazine featuring cowhide, the likelihood is that we have seen it, read it and thoroughly digested it. Now most of what we see isn't funny stuff, but on Twitter, we see things that just tickle our funny bone. So today we thought we'd share a few of our favorite laugh-worthy cowhide tweets. We hope you get a laugh out of them too.

Have you seen any funny cowhide tweets? Sound off in the comments!

True Grit Brings Rustic and Rugged Interior Design Inspiration

We've always known that the cowhide rug is a durable and versatile 'key' piece as well as an interior designer's 'budget buster' secret.  This year - it's even a very popular trend to have cowhide upholstery or other 'accents' - that fits part of the 'true grit interior' trend of rustic furnishings and accessories after the movie True Grit and all it's award nominations. 

This article links to a rug at Neiman Marcus - that is just gorgeous! For around a thousand dollars.  Ouch! Of course - we know - we have the finest quality natural hair-on hides for a fraction of that price at Rawhide Company.  But - that's no secret. You have always been able to get super value and unbelievable quality with our huge selection of cowhide rugs - as well as our world-class customer service.

Pantone Color of the Year - Emerald

Each year, interior and fashion designers anxiously await the announcement of the 'color of the year' from the world-authority on color - Pantone.

Of course, we are in the cowhide rug business, and try hard to offer a great selection of colors, patterns and styles to accent any interior. So - we are thrilled this year that the Pantone Color of the Year is EMERALD; because not only do we have some beautiful green cowhides, we just love the color - It's a fresh and clean hue that can brighten up or accent any decor.

We also love that it can bring a sense of nature indoors; with a grassy and rich resemblance to a freshly cut lawn.

This interior design utilizes a natural hide cowhide rug in green to accent the space in a classy and efficient use of the newest Color of the Year. Certainly - too much green is not for everyone and is also nontraditional as a main hue.  This is what makes a durable cowhide such a great option - add a pop of the most popular color to your design - just the right splash of color.
