The Tutsi blanket is inspired by the fur of zebras. Animal skins have been part of the clothing of human beings practically since time immemorial to protect them from the climate. The first cavemen already used the skins of the animals they hunted to clothe themselves and protect themselves from the cold. Later, as humans evolved, animal skins became a symbol of wealth and social status rather than a need for warmth. In various African societies, leopard skins, for example, had political, social and even religious value. Thus, African tribal chieftains wore animal skins to demonstrate their status as chiefs.
The Tutsi Black and White blanket stands out for its touch of terracotta colour in the central stripe. It is ideal for living rooms with a black and white décor or neutral settings, but thanks to its coloured stripe it adds a little touch of colour. Perfect both as an African inspired home decor accessory and for spending winter evenings on the sofa.
The Tutsi blanket is available in four colour ranges to suit your home decor.
Easy to combine with other black and white blankets such as the Maasai or Zulu blankets or with more colourful blankets such as the Tuareg Cioccolato or the Tutsi Terracotta blankets.
