Renaissance Cowhide

The Renaissance cowhide is unlike any cowhide you have ever seen, it's from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the fantasy world of designers Young & Battaglia.

Designed by Young & Battaglia with artwork by Himitsuhana, these rugs area made in England. Dimensions 1653x1500mm. Material samples available on request. More

Giant Canvases with printed frames
