We are all rather proud at Zulucow HQ, as Zulucow’s hides, cushions and our new Tote handbag are featured in The Field magazine this month! Our unique, sustainably and ethically-sourced Nguni hides have been recommended to their readers for cowhide furniture.
The Editor of The Field’s ‘Country Queries’ column rang me as she had received a query from a reader who wanted to know where and how to use his cowhides in a piece of furniture, and the magazine recommended he contact Zulucow See article below:
‘Country Queries’ column
“PUTTING SKINS TO GOOD USE”
Q: I have two skins that I would like to use to cover furnishings or turn into a bag or gun slip. I am unsure who to ask to do this. My local saddlery shop was unable to help. Can you?
A: Zulucow designs and makes fashion accessories and items of furniture using natural leather and cowhide. Staff will need to assess your skins and they can then suggest various uses, such as covering an ottoman, a footstool or handbag. The timescale is approximately 4-8 weeks and a quotation for each item is given before work commences. Contact Lucy Land on 09783 627710 go to www.zulucow.co.uk
Thank you, the Field magazine. Wow, what a lovely unsolicited ‘advert’ for Zulucow! We really do appreciate it.
Zulucow’s pieces of cowhide furniture are custom-made and beautifully crafted, exactly to your requirements. Our upholstery is traditional and a high standard. Each piece is unique; each hide is individually selected according to your brief and to suit your piece.)
We also sympathetically restore antiques and pieces of furniture (antique or contemporary) with our eye-catching Nguni hides. A recent client, ‘over the moon’ with her newly upholstered cowhide chairs and chaise longues; (which she picked from our Zulucow Cowhide Rugs Pages on our website) sent in these photos (see below.)
After the flurry of excitement, time to get back to work and sort out all these lovely orders! And…more good news: Spring is definitely in the air!
