Reindeer Hide Rugs
Reindeer hides are one of the plushest, luxurious pelts available – thanks to the dense, thick nature of reindeer fur. Their stunningly soft, luxurious touch and thick, spongy feel underfoot sets them apart from sheepskin and makes for a unique and truly stylish addition to any space. Reindeer skins offers a truly sensual experience – their unique feel, smell and look is like no other.
Reindeer rugs come in a range of subtle, soft colours – dappled greys, muted browns, pure, creamy whites. For this reason, they’re ideally suited to a variety of interior spaces and make perfect statement pieces – imparting a cosy, comforting feel of effortless Nordic charm.
Reindeer were first tamed in Finland in the 1600’s – and since then native Sami communities have farmed them for their meat, milk and luxurious pelts. These foodstuffs are crucial for survival in the inhospitably cold and rugged environments Sami people live within – but reindeer hide also plays an incredibly important role. They are used extensively to make clothing, footwear, blankets, rugs and wall coverings. Even today, centuries later, reindeer herding is one of the most important aspects of Sami culture and daily life.
Reindeer are most commonly associated with Lapland – but they can also, in fact, be sourced from throughout the Northern territories in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Greenland and even Russia. Our reindeer hides are carefully and ethically sourced from sustainable farms in Finland. They are all the highest possible ‘A’ grade – and their unique origin ensures truly sophisticated and stunning style.
