The Persian cowhide is unlike any cowhide you have ever seen. It's from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the fantasy world of designers Young & Battaglia. The piece is a playful and unexpected marriage between two of the most iconic rugs in the world. The meticulous and geometric Persian carpet is seamlessly combined with the natural irregularity of an animal skin rug. The design is made possible by digitally printing on to a special rubber backed fabric which is then hand cut into its final hide shape. It is hypo-allergenic, washable, non-slip, and will not curl up at the edges.
