The natural white skins are "creamy white" with
a yellowish hue. The bleached white are not snow white, but are much
whiter than the natural skins. With a wool length of approximately 4.8”, the
Kidassia goatskins make ideal rugs and furniture coverings.

The goatskins we offer are a by-product of the food
industry. These skins are not subject to USFWS export controls or to
CITES. They are NOT endangered.
We only stock bleached white rugs at this time. Other colors
besides bleached white may be available on a custom-order basis.
2) Other sizes
are available on a custom-order basis. Please note that rugs larger than
eight skins become very difficult to handle and have significant price
increases for labor. Depending upon the size of the rug, it takes
two to three people to sew the skins together. Very large area rugs
can be made by using two-inch wide Velcro tape to keep the rugs together.
We do not accept credit card payment on orders of Four-Skin Rugs and
larger in colors other than bleached white. Custom orders must be
paid for by wire transfer or bank draft prior to shipping. If you
want to pay by wire transfer, please call us for our banking information.
returns only within five days of receipt if you are unhappy with the rug
for any reason. You pay shipping and insurance both ways. No returns on
used rugs or custom sizes or colors for any reason.
5) Please allow four to
six weeks for completion of custom work. Rugs that are in stock are
usually shipped within one to two days.
6) We can add a
lining to the back of the skin for an extra US$250. We can use
velvet or wool for the backing. We do not recommend a satin backing
as the rug will slide too easily.
These are natural products and the rugs may shed some hair over
time. We will not take any rugs back for shedding or loose hair. The
solution is to comb or beat the rugs and vacuum in the area around
them. We do not recommend using a floor vacuum with wheels on the
rug itself as the fibers may get caught in the wheel and be ripped out.
Because there are about two hundred possible different colors and an
infinite number of sizes, we do not accept returns for any reason for
custom orders. If you want to see the workmanship prior to ordering
a custom color or size, you can purchase 4' by 6' rug to look at and send
it right back for a refund. You are responsible for shipping costs
