How do you know the size of a cowhide rug?
How do you measure a cowhide rug? Good question - Every hide has a different organic shape.
At the tannery the size of the hide is measured by a machine that scans the surface area of each rug. This gives us the amount of leather in a cowhide rug in square meters and there is usually a sticker with the size stuck on the back of the rug.
As shown in the diagram, we measure from the widest points of the animal skin across the back legs and head to tail off center.
Understanding how Gorgeous Creatures measure cowhides
Every cowhide company uses a different scale to measure hides, so a company may claim to sell large hides but on our scale they are only small medium or medium.
We use square metres as the way of measuring and pricing our cow skins:-
- A very small rug is under 2sqm 'square metres'
- A small rug is from 2.1msq - 2.7msq 'square metres'
- A small medium rug is from 2.8msq - 3.05msq 'square metres'
- A medium rug is from 3.1msq - 3.45msq 'square metres'
- A large medium rug is from 3.5msq - 3.8msq 'square metres'
- A large rug is from 3.85msq - 4.2msq 'square metres' and
- An extra large rug can be over 4.3msq 'square metres'
We supply these measurements in metric squares metres and also the lineal head to tail and across the hide legs measurements. This is to help you work out the correct hide size for your room setting or interior space.
