Bring texture and individuality into your home, whether it is a full cowhide or a shaggy yetti sheepskin, you know these striking rugs will guarantee your interior décor makes an undeniable statement that is bang on trend. Our sheepskin rugs are ideal for use on the floor as mats, carpets, seat covers or sofa backs - we have even seen them used as curtains, now that's what you call draft proofing, but it does look stunning! Owen Barry offer three sizes for the sheepskin rug collection, singles, doubles and quads, because our rugs are natural pelts, when we are joining them the sizing quoted will vary slightly, however as you would expect because we hand select and match them in our own Somerset workshop variation is kept to a minimum.
Dimensions: H CM x W 60 CM x D 100 CM
The stunning skins originate from Tibet or Mongolia, where the harsh terrain of the mountains and steppe product very specific sheep, these skins (like all OB skins) are 100% a bi-product of the meat industry.
The voluminous super fine curly wool is natures way of trapping the warm air next to the skin, protecting the animal in the severest of weather conditions.
This unique wool cannot be found anywhere else in the world, the delicate fibres of the soft long wool make it the most delicate (by far) of all the skins we offer, therefore care should be taken to maintain it exquisite appearance.
Owen Barry does not offer Tibetan skins made up as large products as we believe they are too fragile for repeated hard use, they are, however, perfect for interior design accent pieces and chair backs etc.
Care has to be taken when cleaning these skins, they are very delicate, if the wool becomes matted, do NOT force a comb thru or you could rip the wool clean away from the skin, spot wash, like washing a baby's hair, very gently. HOT water is not a good idea (like with all wool products), but with Tibetans, it is very risky, - for more info check out our product care section.
