Many people complain they got cheated and given a fake cowhide rug. The most prominent reason for this is they don't know how to identify a genuine cowhide rug. The second reason is not buying from a trusted seller. When purchasing natural cowhide rugs, you must look for reliable sellers. Cowhide rugs from Leffler are the best quality cowhide rugs you can find online.

Cowhide rugs are not at all cheap and when you buy them, make sure you're getting exactly what you are paying for. So, to give you some idea, refer to the following points whenever you shop for them.

How to Find Genuine Cowhide Rugs?


The cowhide rugs are made from natural skin, making them quite tough to break and worn out easily. If you see any worn-out signs in the rugs, you can tell that it's not genuine. Most synthetic rugs have a shorter life, and if you have placed them in a high-traffic area, they will start disintegrating quite soon.

An authentic cowhide rug is hard-wearing and can handle lots of activity and even some occasional spills. Just with a bit of maintenance, cowhide rugs from Leffler can last for years.

Texture And Feel

The skin has a soft and supple natural texture that's nearly impossible to replicate. When you buy a faux cowhide rug, you will realize that it did feel soft and plush initially but slowly losing the softness. Also, it will lose shine on it and start looking patchy, which is not possible if you have a genuine cowhide rug. A natural cowhide rug from Leffler will look the same even if you look at it after years.

Cost Difference

Many sellers claim to sell genuine cowhide rugs at heavy discounts and deals. However, in most cases, it's a faux leather rug. An authentic cowhide rug will never be cheap, as a lot of time and money goes into creating it. It can come at some discount, but you are indeed not paying for a genuine cowhide rug if you get it at half the price.

Good Quality

The next thing you can do is pick the rug and feel its weight. Natural cowhide rugs are heavy, which you will not feel when choosing synthetic rugs. Also, the fur quality of a genuine cowhide rug would be much better than faux leather. Skin fur is finer, while a synthetic one will not be as fine as your authentic cowskin rug. Likewise, a genuine cowhide rug will have a natural warmth of the skin, usually missing in a synthetic rug.


A genuine cowhide rug is unique, and if you have one, no one else can own the same. Skin acts as an active barrier between the body and the outside environment. That is why every animal has different skin, whether from the same family. This means cowhide leather is unique and has no copies. If you find two similar rugs, that's not genuine cowhide. Each cowhide rug from Leffler is unique, and it shows it's natural.

Lastly, a natural cowhide rug will never wrinkle. So, try to fold your rug and see if it has wrinkles or not. Wrinkles mean it is a faux cowhide rug. So, there are numerous ways you can differentiate a genuine cowhide rug from a faux leather rug. Keep all the points that have been mentioned when shopping as these tips will help you find a genuine rug.
