We are a Canadian based online store with direct roots from South Africa where we import one of the most unique cow breed hides in the world from. With this venture we employ low income families in South Africa giving them a opportunity for a better future and supplying your house with the finishing touch it needs. It’s a win win situation.
The Nguni is a hardy cattle breed that can build muscle and strive in the toughest and driest of conditions. It is possible for them to use little and low quality protein to put on the pounds. This cow breed was very popular among Bantu-speaking tribes of southern Africa because of their fertility and resistance to diseases.
The harsh African sun and bush fields they live in makes their hides one of the hardiest and best leathers out there, perfect for a long lasting hair on leather rug. You’ll also find markings on these hides from the bush that tell the life story of each creature.

Every rug or product is a piece of ART by NATURE. My parents have had one in their house for about 16 years now and it still looks as beautiful as the day they got it. I loved laying and playing on it as a kid because, it made me feel wild and free.
