This luxuriously soft, cozy, lightweight, and hypoallergenic throw will sometimes be a superhero cloak, other times a picnic blanket but always a keeper of memories.
The African Zebra print throw is a gorgeous expression of Africa's soul. Each woven strand holds the intricate stories of the African people that helped bring your blanket to life. Every fiber wraps you in comfort and warmth like that of your grandmother's embrace.
The Zebra is recognized around the world by its distinctive black and white striped coat. Throughout the generations, the Zebra has been the subject of many vibrant African folk tales of how it got its unique stripes. According to the ancient people of Namibia, the Zebra was once all white and only acquired its black stripes after fighting with a baboon over a water hole.
The Zebra kicked the baboon so hard, that it lost its balance and stumbled into the baboon’s fire. Sticks from the fire left scorch marks on the Zebra’s white coat, creating the black stripes. Some believe that when Zebras come together, their combined stripes act as camouflage which confuses their predators. This is why a herd of Zebras is called a ‘dazzle.’ Spiritually, the Zebra is a symbol of individuality and intuition. It is also lauded for its agility and sure-footedness.
The Africa Zebra print 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
