WHY MAKE THE SWITCH TO HIDES AND WOOL RUGS
Don’t use wall-to-wall carpeting if you can help it.
The fibers and backing, chemical treatments, padding and glues all come with their own chemical consequences. Some types of carpeting use chemicals that have been associated with respiratory symptoms, eye irritation and rashes, as well as chemicals that can react with each other to produce formaldehyde, a known human carcinogen.
ABOUT THE CRACKER CATTLE
The Florida Cracker is one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the United States, descending from Spanish cattle brought to the Americas in the early 1500s. As the Spanish colonized Florida and other parts of the continent, they established typical Spanish low-input, extensive cattle-ranging systems. The Florida Cracker and other breeds that developed under these conditions are called “Criollo” cattle, which means, “of European origin but born in the New World.”
Cowhide rugs are a 100% natural product. This means none of the color patterns are identical because every animal has a coat of fur that’s different.
