Our beautiful Burchell zebra skins from South Africa are trophy grade (minimal scarring and blemishes). Each hide has a groomed neck mane as well as a groomed tail, leaving no question that it is indeed genuine zebra. Our rugs utilize the full hide and measure from (60 – 65 in.) Wide x (8 – 11 ft.) long.
We apply a weighted felt backing to our zebra rugs that give the zebra hide the extra support it needs to lay flat on the floor. For production, such as furniture or upholstery, we recommend non-felt back zebra hides which are more pliable.
Zebra are often misrepresented as being pure white and black. Genuine zebra hides are more realistically a creme/tan color with dark brown to black stripes. Each striped pattern is unique to the animal and no two zebra will have the exact same striped pattern. Our species of zebra, equus burchelli, features wider, unsymmetrical stripes from head to tail.
Burchell Zebra are common animals on the African continent and legal in the United States to both sell and own. Zebra are wild animals that have some natural scarring and blemishes; we inspect and hand-pick the best hides for our rugs.
