The Romans called zebras ‘hippotigris’ and trained them to pull carts in circuses. Zebras are certainly horse like but their uniquely striped coat sets them apart from all other horses. It is believed the zebras stripes help it camouflage making it difficult to focus on when moving thus making it harder to catch. In nature it is very unusual to find a zebra alone. They are social animals and stay together in family groups or larger herds. Today’s post is dedicated to the zebra pattern.
Redelman fabrics has only one stock Zebra. Dewas Black White is a beautiful specimen. This silk poly cotton embraces its stripes with vivacity. It is a jacquard weave with a high contrast black white pattern and a 37cm repeat.
