The Zulu blanket is inspired by the bogolan, a traditional African fabric closely linked to the culture of Mali. The word bogo means mud and lan means to make, so bogolan means 'made with clay'. These fabrics are characterised by their colours, which are obtained from natural plant pigments, and by their patterns.
Traditional bogolan is characterised by the contrast of black and white, while modern bogolan incorporates earth tones. Their geometric shapes and symbolism are based on the culture and customs of the people. The meaning can vary depending on how they are placed and how they are linked to other symbols.
Zulu Burgundy is a burgundy and earth tone blanket finished with white fringes. The burgundy colour is a versatile tone to decorate from an elegant room to a bohemian style home. Its soft texture makes it the ideal soft warm blanket to face the winter cold with extra softness and warmth.
The Zulu blanket is available in four colour ranges to suit your home decor.
Pair it with other burgundy blankets such as the Sioux Burgundy blanket or go for a touch of contrast and combine it with the Zulu Pistacchio blanket or the Maya Muschino/Vino cushion.
