First and foremost our single pelt hides and/or sheepskin rugs we sell are 100% all natural GENUINE SHEEPSKIN. Our sheepskin rugs are ethically obtained as possible and tanned under strict European regulation using natural tannis and are never chromium tanned! The sheep are NOT bred and killed for their fur, their hides are a byproduct that would otherwise go to waste.
The sheepskins we sell are Eco-friendly as possible and more so than their synthetic counterparts. They're tanned using natural tannis and never chromium which is harmful to your health! The final step of the tanning process includes washing the sheepskin in a light fresh scented detergent so they do have a distinct light fresh scent/odor that will dissipate over time which can be sped up by airing outside in a shady spot. This is important since some folks hate any smells while others love their unique fresh scent. I will say I'm very sinus and scent sensitive and it does not bother me or my allergies.
Usually if I inhale an odor such as scented candles I will have a headache for at least a day or more! Another thing you will notice is that most of our sheepskin rugs are not dyed or tinted (in order to make a pure white sheepskin) which preserves their unique character in which only nature could have created.
Our sheepskin rugs are kept in their natural state which gives them a more wild, unique and natural look. Due to the vast differences from hide to hide if you have any questions or concerns prior to ordering we'd be happy to assist!
