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 the union with other symbols.
The Zulu Black and White blanket is an African blanket ideal for both Nordic and boho style home environments. Its softness, warmth and lightness makes it a perfect blanket to shelter from the cold.
The Zulu blanket is available in four colour ranges to suit your home decor.
Finished with black fringes, it is ideal to combine with other black and white blankets as well as with brightly coloured blankets, enjoy it on both sides!
