Wholesale Rugs and Pillows

Are you offering your clients double felt trimmed rugs?

As with everything else these days, rug techniques have changed over the years.

Everyone has seen the zebra rugs with carpet backing and leather trim. These days we are not stopping there. At Lost Pines Taxidermy we are putting carpet backing and leather trim on bears, bobcats, coyotes, and more!

Felt is hard to clean, whereas with a leather trim, it is easy to clean and provides a higher end looking rug. It will also preserve the hide much longer.

Our average turn-around time is 30-60 days.

All hides should be commercially tanned.

Prices include sewing holes, stretching, and rugging.
Extra charge for excessive holes, shop tans or fragile (Old tan) skins is $50.00 per hour and will be added without notice. If extra charge will exceed 1 hour ($50.00) you will receive a phone call before proceeding.

References are also available upon request.

Rug Restoration


Some clients have had rugs for years or passed down through the family, but over time it has fell apart and needs more than just cleaning. 

We will remove the old backing, clean the hide, repair any torn parts, and re-rug on carpet with a leather trim.

This process will ensure many more years of your clients memories.

The cost will vary depending on the type of prior rug work, repairs needed and size. Please contact us for quotes.
