Let's start with a crash course in animal print furniture construction:

The first step in making animal print furniture is to select the hide. Hides are the animal skin that will be used to upholster the furniture.

Animal hide furniture has been around for centuries. It is made from the skin and fur of animals, usually cows, pigs, sheep, and goats. The hide is stretched over a frame and then stitched together. The hair is usually left on the hide, which gives it its distinctive animal print look.

Animal print furniture is created using animal hide. The first step is to remove the animal's hide. This is done by carefully slicing the hide away from the animal's body. Next, the hide is sanded down to remove any bristles or other irregularities. Once the hide is smooth, it is then soaked in a mixture of salt and water. This helps to preserve the hide and prevent it from rotting and helps soften the hide for better manipulation. After the hide has been soaked, it is then stretched over a frame and left to dry and secured with nails or staples. The hair is then trimmed away, and the hide is left to dry. Once it is dry, it can be sanded and stained to finish the piece and create the desired animal print effect. Animal print furniture can be a stylish and unique addition to any home, and it can last for many years with proper care.

Hide furniture is typically made by artisans who have specialized in this type of work. Each one of our pieces at Hat Creek Interiors is carefully selected for quality, and handmade with the utmost precision and care. You can trust in the quality of our animal print furniture, including cow print chairs, to uphold to the test of time and be a generational heirloom piece.

Animal hide furniture adds a unique touch to any home. It is important to remember that it requires special care and should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent fading. With proper care, animal hide furniture can last for many years.

Why It Is Important to Take care of your Animal Print Furniture

Many people are drawn to animal print furniture for its unique style. Whether it's a cow print chair or a zebra print sofa, there's no denying that these pieces can make a bold statement in any room. However, animal print furniture is also notoriously difficult to care for. The delicate fabrics can be easily damaged by dirt and stains, and the intricate patterns can be difficult to clean. As a result, it's important to take extra care when cleaning and storing animal print furniture. With proper care, these pieces can last for years and remain as beautiful as the day they were bought.

Vacuum your Animal Print Furniture On a Regular Basis.

First things first: vacuum your furniture on a regular basis. This will help to remove any dirt or grit that could potentially damage the fabric. If you have pets, you may want to vacuum even more frequently just to be on the safe side. Another good vacuuming tip is to use a soft brush attachment; this will help avoid any scratches or tears in the fabric. Make sure your vacuum is on a low-medium setting to avoid ripping out the hairs of the hide.

Keep your leather furniture out of direct sunlight.

The sun can cause the leather to fade and crack over time. If you must put your leather furniture in a sunny room, make sure to draw the curtains or blinds during the daytime hours.

Avoid putting your leather furniture near heat sources

Putting your high-quality leather furniture too close to heat sources like fireplaces, radiators, and air vents can damage the leather. The heat can cause the leather to dry out and crack.

Keep pets off of the furniture

Pets can cause scuffs, scratches, and other types of damage with their claws or teeth. In addition, pet hair can be difficult to remove from leather furniture. If you do allow pets on your furniture, make sure they're well-groomed beforehand.

Spot Clean Animal Print Furniture

In addition to vacuuming, you should also spot-clean your animal print furniture as needed. Use a mild soap and lukewarm water, and test in an inconspicuous area first to make sure the fabric won't bleed or run. Avoid detergent, cleaners, and soap that contains harsh chemicals. This can disintegrate the animal's skin and make it weaker over time. When blotting the stain, be sure to work from the outside in so that you don't end up spreading the mess around.

Dry Off Any Wettness From the Animal Print

And finally, if your animal print furniture gets wet for any reason (remember: accidents happen), be sure to dry it off immediately. Use a clean, absorbent towel, and again, work from the outside in. Once the area is mostly dry, you can turn on a fan or place a stack of newspapers over the wet spot to help speed up the drying process. Also,

By following these simple tips, you can keep your animal print furniture looking great for years to come! Vacuum regularly, spot clean as needed, and dry off wet spots immediately.

How to care for Animal Print Rugs

At Hat Creek Interiors, we also stock high-quality animal print and cowhide rugs. It is important to take care of these rugs, since they are made with natural materials and experience direct foot traffic that can weaken them over time. Follow these tips for how to take care of your animal print rug and keep it lasting for generations.

When it comes to animal print rugs, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to ensure they remain in good condition. First, because the animal hide is a natural material, it is important to avoid exposure to excessive sunlight or heat as this can cause the hide to dry out and become brittle. Secondly, animal print rugs should be vacuumed regularly in order to remove dust and dirt build-up which can dull the fibers over time. Finally, if you spill something on your animal print rug, it is important to act quickly and spot-clean the area with mild soap and cool water. By following these simple tips, you can enjoy your animal print rug for many years to come.
