Product Description Designed by Young & Battaglia Made in England The Persian 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. The piece is a playful and unexpected marriage between two of the most iconic rugs in the world. The meticulous and geometric Persian carpet is seamlessly combined with the natural irregularity of an animal skin rug. The design is made possible by digitally printing on to a special fabric backed rubber which is the hand cut in to its final hide shape. Unlike real cowhides this one is hypo-allergenic, washable, non-slip, and will not curl up at the edges. A fusion between art and utility, this rug will add a beautifully surreal touch to any interior. Please hand brush and hoover with care. Material sample available on request. Available In Grey, Blue and Brown and Black Theme: Surreal, Cowhide rug, Fantasy, Persian rug, Designer rug, Dimensions: 1653 x 1500mm Thickness: 2mm Material: Rubber backed fabric Lead time: 2-3 weeks **for any urgent orders please call or email to check stock availability.
"We believe that the objects we surround ourselves with everyday should be more than just functional, they should be made of stories, love, art and poetry in order to meaningfully exist..." Mineheart was launched in 2010 by designers Brendan Young and Vanessa Battaglia. The company name Mineheart was inspired by the Shakespearian quote: "Mine eye and heart..." to symbolise their dual passions; love for tradition and eye for contemporary design which is combined in often surprising and delightful ways within the Mineheart collection. “The idea behind Mineheart is to create a playground for creativity and discovery, where art meets design, and poetry meets industry. We try to inject a sense of wonder into everyday objects and spaces around us, telling stories and creating things that are truly surprising,” Young&Battaglia Key to Mineheart’s ethos is also the support of British design and manufacturing. Most Mineheart products are designed, made and assembled in the UK, this enables more control over production and quality, giving greater flexibility and the ability to offer custom made and bespoke pieces for clients. They are all made by passionate people, who love, live and breathe their craft. At Mineheart, we are always looking for inspirational work, new materials and interesting collaborations. We collaborate with artists from various backgrounds and medias where their world meets ours in a complementary and surprising way. We have enjoyed working with artists such as Himitsuhana, Chad Wys, Angela Rossi, Joao Figueiredo and Courtney Brims who’s work fits perfectly within the Mineheart mindset, often mixing or twisting classical ideas in new and unexpected ways. We are constantly working on new ideas, and we only produce things we really really like. Our work brings us joy and we hope our products transmit that into the homes they are used in, and that we can continue on this exciting journey of art and discovery for many years to come ;-)
