Discover Real Cowhides
The Moment You See and Feel Our Vegetable-Tanned Cowhides, You Know the Difference.
Howdy Hides’ rare and luxurious vegetable-tanned cowhides have a beautiful sheen with a soft feel that lasts generations.
When used as rugs, they accentuate the entire room while feeling amazing under your feet.
Used as throws or wall decorations, the hides' natural luminance and luster warms the room while complementing other design elements.
We love working with them every day, and we guarantee you'll love them, too.
Vegetable-tanned hides are more expensive than chemically tanned hides. It takes 45-60 times longer to produce a gold-standard cowhide using the age-old vegetable tanning process.
Because the vegetable-tanning process is time-consuming and expensive, less than 1% of the cowhide rugs and throws sold in America are produced using this time-proven, artisan process.
Hides using vegetable-tanning are vastly superior to chemically-tanned hides on every level, with the bonus of not filling our planet with heavy metal chemicals.

"These are great people with great products. My wife and I just got a hide rug today; very high-quality product". Justin A.
Howdy Hides is great! I've seen a LOT of hides, and when I saw yours, that is when I decided to acquire a few. Your hides were better looking and softer than any that I'd seen. I knew they were good quality. Have had mine for over a year and they still look just as good as when I purchased them (and I have four pups)." David T.
