Anyone who has ever read a design magazine is familiar with the ubiquitous cowhide rug, and everyone who has shopped for one knows the steep prices they command. For a high quality cowhide, you can expect to spend between $400 and $700… Until now.
Brad Lynch, guy style guru and aesthetic warrior, introduced me to Denver’s best kept secret: Tandy Leather Factory. There’s so much I could say about this store: the location (strip mall and seedy), the walls of cowboy accoutrement (buckles and button studs), but most important is the quality (high) and the price (low) of the hides, low to the tune of $179.99.
