Understanding how Gorgeous Creatures measure cowhides

Where to measure your cowhide rug

How big is a cowhide rug? How do you measure a cowhide rug? Good question - Every hide has a different organic shape. At the tannery, the size of the hide is measured by a machine that scans the surface area of each rug. This gives us the amount of leather in a cowhide rug in square meters, and there is usually a sticker with the size stuck on the back of the rug.

As shown in the diagram, we measure from the widest points of the animal skin across the back legs and head to tail off center

Every cowhide company uses a different scale to measure hides. So an online cowhide company may claim to sell large hides but on our size scale, they are only small or medium-sized skins.

How big are our cowhide rugs?

We use square metres (msq) as the way of measuring & pricing our cow skins:-

  • A very small rug is under 1.6sqm 'square metres'
  • A small rug is from 1.8msq - 2.2msq 'square metres'
  • A small medium rug is from 2.3msq - 2.7msq 'square metres'
  • A medium rug is from 2.8msq - 3.3msq 'square metres'
  • A large medium rug is from 3.4msq - 3.80msq 'square metres'
  • A large rug is from 3.9msq - 4.2msq 'square metres'
  • An extra large rug can be over 4.3msq 'square metres'

We supply these measurements to you in metric square metres, and also the lineal head to tail, and across the hide legs measurements. This is to help you work out the correct hide size for your room setting or interior space.
