This soft, beautifully woven, cozy, lightweight, hypoallergenic, machine-washable, sustainably, and ethically crafted African print throw is based on the timeless stripe unique to the Xhosa tribe. It is traditionally loomed in South Africa and the predominant use of black and white in their designs is steeped in tradition. It has a minimalist and elegant beauty that is bursting with tradition and culture. It is the perfect size to curl up on the sofa or toss in the car. A customer from California, "I love how soft this blanket is. It is simple and elegant."
Hypoallergenic, No toxic dyes or chemicals used...ever
Inspired by the stripes of timeless Xhosa clothing and blankets. Unique to the Xhosa people, the predominant use of black and white in their designs is steeped in tradition. Cultural rituals are symbolic through every stage of life and development for the Xhosa people, such as knowing one’s Isiduko (clan). This is considered so important that when two strangers meet for the first time, the first identity that gets shared is Isiduko. This forms the origins of ubuntu (human kindness), a behavior synonymous with this nation, as extending a helping hand to a complete stranger when in need. It is also the roots of the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”.
The African Xhosa throw is fully machine washable. We recommend machine wash your blanket on a cool, gentle cycle and line-drying to preserve the fibers and color for full care guide check out our full care guide here

Beautiful, High Quality and Craftmanship
I chose the Xhosa Stripe pattern because I wanted something that was going to pop and catch my eye, and work well with my cottage-farmhouse style. I could not be more pleased with the high quality and craftsmanship.
