Cowhide is definitely on trend this season. Last week The Times Magazine’s ‘Home!’ section included a full page on all things cowhide in its ‘What to buy now’ advice pages.
We at Zulucow HQ and you, our classy herd of cowhide aficionados, have been enjoying our exquisite, Nguni cowhide fashion accessories and ‘home’ items for more than 4 years now. Catch up The Times!
Recent commissions include sumptuous glossy ottomans chaise longues and club chairs.
Rockett St George celebrates ‘Californian Cowboy Chic’ with its funky Canyon Cowhide Bench, launched this A/W16 and even French Connection has jumped on the cowhide ‘bandwagon’ with its cowhide leather chair which it claims will “inject a modern mid-century Scandinavian influence into your home.”
Citycows has row upon rows of mass-produced cowhide footstools which don’t really appeal to me. I prefer the loving and detailed attention our long- established upholsterer gives our custom made high end footstool frames; We work together and with our clients, carefully select the studs and feet to go with each piece and its hide.
The Times feature: Invest in A WILD THING’ also featured beanbags from puresheepskin.co.uk at £995.
We have just extended our home range to include a few carefully selected, huge Nguni cowhide beanbags . Each beanbag is a statement piece and unique, with its gorgeous panels of soft glossy dramatic Nguni cowhide carefully selected and stitched together by hand, by one of our team of talented artisans. At £599 they’re a bargain! (Celtic & Co has a sheepskin beanbag for £785, Cox and Cox ‘s sheepskin beanbags are: £750. The White Company has a huge sheepskin beanbag coming in at a heft £895! And The English Cowhide Company has a cowhide beanbag fro £599 but it’s not a patch on our unique Nguni cowhide beanbags ‘Out of Africa’ and originating from the indigenous, beautifully patterned Nguni cattle; venerated and bred by the Zulus over centuries, for their dramatic colours, mottles and beauty.
We only have 4 beanbags left in stock and due to the time involved in selecting the hides and sewing them by hand; there will sadly be no more beanbags this year!
