Rest assured that every cowhide we sell is of the highest quality. Nicer cowhides simply do not exist. Most every cow hide comes from either Argentina, Brazil, or Colombia the three countries that are known to produce the finest quality cow hides in the world.
Each one of our "animal print" cowhides is actually stenciled onto a white cow hide. The leather is very supple and not stiff like many cow hides. In addition, there is no unpleasant smell that can come from the tanning chemicals that are so often present in other cowhides.
Concerning product care, cowhides are very easily cared for. Simple soap and water on a sponge will cover most problems. Steam cleaning your cowhide will also work.
Our mink blanket lines consists of many different colors and over 30 different popular collectible designs of some of the softest and most luxurious blankets you will find anywhere! In addition to our solid colors, we have dolphins, tigers, lions, leopards, zebras, black panthers, wolves, unicorns, and many more.
What makes our acrylic mink blankets so plush? It's the fiber! The quality of a blanket is mostly determined by the quality of its fiber. Even though all manufacturers have access to superior acrylic, most manufacturers use lower priced acrylic to lower the cost of the blanket. Most of the cost of a blanket is determined by the cost of the material. Lower priced acrylic, and subsequently, lower priced blankets result in lower quality blankets.
Even though most people determine quality by softness, there are more important characteristics that determine quality. The true key to quality is what the blanket looks like after if has been washed a number of times.
Blankets made from superior acrylic will look like new even after many, many washings. They will not fade, shrink, "draw" up at the borders, or exhibit any other characteristic that lower priced, poorer quality blankets will have.
Our four or five product lines all use superior quality acrylic. Whether our blankets come from Korea, China or the Middle East, each one will look like new after many, many washings. And again, this "wash ability" factor is the true mark of quality, assuming the blanket looks nice and is unusually soft.
As a side note, many of our "premium" grade animal designs along with a complete line of solids available in four sizes, are made from acrylic from Germany’s world famous Bayer Manufacturing Company, producers of "Dralon" acrylic, internationally recognized as some of the softest, most luxurious blanket acrylic fiber in the world! (Bayer textile Company is actually a subsidiary of the Bayer Aspirin Pharmaceutical Company.)
We will be carrying other "premium" quality" lines of solid colored blankets from both China and Korea that are literally some of the softest blankets in the world!
Our four Korean blanket manufacturers, in turn, use the best available acrylic in Korea. Companies like "Golden Bear", "Solaron"" and "Wonu" by far and away make the best blankets in all of Korea. Even our "standard" quality Korean blankets are far superior than most other Korean blankets.
In a nutshell, you simply will not believe how soft, cuddly and beautiful our mink blankets are! Other than our lines, no other blanket lines that we know of can compare in either softness or beauty, much less having both qualities in the same line. When you look at our colors and designs, all comparison stops. See for yourself.
Most all other mink blankets from Korea or China cannot compare. The San Marcos or Novatex blankets from Mexico cannot compare. Neither can the blankets from Ibena, Biederlack, or Fingerhut compare to our mink blankets in overall softness, washibility, beauty, colors, designs, or quality.
As a side note, many of our mink blankets will actually feel softer once they have been washed. this is especially true of our blankets with the German "Dralon" acrylic in them. Some blanket manufacturers apply a starch-like substance known as "sizing" to the acrylic to facilitate the manufacturing process. Washing removes this substance, leaving a softer blanket!

Each sheepskin is then put through a unique forty-two-step process which the company has been perfecting for the past one hundred twenty years! This unique process involves a series of finishing and polishing steps that result in sheepskin wool of unparalleled softness!

Alpaca fur (or wool) comes from alpaca animals which live in the Andes Mountains of South America. They live as high as 14,000 feet making them some of the highest living animals in the world.
Alpaca fur is unquestionably one of the softest, most luxurious furs known! It's incredible softness truly defies description! It is also one of the warmest natural fibers, making its wool some of the most highly prized.
As a result, alpaca furs make ideal bedspreads and comforters. They are also ideal for “light traffic” area rugs.
Alpacas are Domesticated Animals are Raised Only for their Fur
Alpacas are domesticated animals and are sheared once or twice a year for their highly priced fur. Alpacas are never killed strictly for the fur for it is much too valuable! Unfortunately, being very delicate and living at such high altitudes, over one third perish at a very early age. It is from these animals that some of the world’s finest leather craftsmen make these exquisite pieces.
