Sorry, I should have been more helpful.

We had a bunch of sofa throw cushions in the lobby of a place I worked that were covered in cowhide (not leather, still had the bristle on them) and they were terrible for attracting mosquitoes. I had housekeeping spray them twice a day but then the bristles started snapping off and getting on clothes. We had to replace them.

Hopefully if you have dried them or something then it will be better, but these cushions were bought from a reputable supplier so they were probably treated somehow before delivery and they were still bad.

No worries. I guess Nawty can work something out. Probably some kind of dry ice + human juice remedy. He's a bit of a handyman.

Apparently you can tell us what colour you want and that's the beastie that'll get the knife.

But I am wondering.....do they have an endless supply of cows they can knock off when someone syas they want just the skin ??

I do feel kind of guilty now....ordering the hit of 4 cows is not an easy thing to live with.

  1. How to Get Cowhides Tanned
  2. Step 1
    Soak your skin in a vat of water overnight. Then stretch your hide, hair side down, on a large flat board, such as a piece of 3/4-inch particle board or plywood. If necessary, use your knife to make small holes near the edge of your hide and pass ropes through the holes. Stake the ropes to pull your hide tight.
  3. Step 2
    Scrape the hide with your dull knife to remove any fat or meat still attached. If the hide is thick, use your dull knife to slowly and carefully scrape the hide until it is thinner. If you do not want the hair left on your cowhide, turn the hide over, rub the hair side with a mixture of urine and the ash from an old barbecue or wood fire, then scrape the hair off with your dull knife, being careful not to cut into the hide itself. This is a long and smelly process.
  4. Step 3
    Place dog and/or pigeon dung into a vat and add a small amount of warm water. Use a wooden pole with a flat end to squish the dung into a paste. This is a smelly and disgusting part of the process, but the enzymes in the dung break down the collagen in the skin of your hide and make the leather soft and supple. Immerse your hide into the dog dung and use your pole to continue pushing your hide deeper and deeper into the dung, stirring it and using the pole to help break down the hide. Once your hide has become soft and supple lay it out flat where it can be hosed off, and properly dispose of the dog dung. Clean your vat.
  5. Step 4
    Fill your vat with medium hot water and stir in your crushed oak bark. Use your pole to continue crushing and breaking up the bark. The water should become a dark reddish brown color. This is tannin being leached from the oak bark. Once the water is a good, deep color add your hide into the vat and continue stirring until your hide is completely soaked. Allow your hide to soak in the tannin solution for a minimum of two full days.
  6. Step 5
    Pull your hide out of the tannin solution and lay it flat out of direct sunlight. Allow the leather to dry for at least 1 day. Your leather should now be soft and supple and ready to make into shoes, belts, or used for whatever purpose you wish.
