goatskin hides are becoming more and more popular for accent pieces. In addition, many people buy calfskins to make into lampshades.

goat skins and calf skins can be easily cut up to use in upholstering furniture.

Designer, Custom Made
Square or Rectangular Goat Skin And Calf Skin Area Rugs
We specialize in designing and manufacturing custom area rugs using square pieces of cow hides, goat skins or calf skins. We can make any size or colored rug using square pieces of calfskins and
goatskins, ranging from 4 to 16 inches in dimension. These breathtaking custom made pieces will add a sense of sophistication to any setting.
Unlike our designer cowhides that are quite thick, calfskins and
goat skins are thin in comparison. As a result, in addition to using these calf skin and
goat skin designer pieces for accent area rugs, they are thin enough to use for decorative furniture or bed coverings.
As a matter of fact, they can look quit breathtaking!
