There is a distinct clamor that zebra skin rugs posses. You will never walk in a room that has one and fail to not only notice it but be tempted to take a photo of it. The sheer beauty that you would enjoy when on a safari in Africa is brought all back into your home. Zebras are very distinctively colored animals whose pelts are legally sold and traded in South Africa and Tanzania. You will have the best of the skin if you carefully choose the right vendor and after you have verified that the actual skin is being legally sold to you. Putting that aside, you will have a myriad areas and functions for which you can use a zebra skin. Here are some of the reasons why you should use the rug;

There is definite beauty that no other animal can afford. There is no other animal that has stripes that are so distinctively displayed. Upon looking closer at the skin, you will fully appreciate the true beauty that this beast comes with. Rather than the black stripes being black, they are chocolate brown. There is also that exotic aura that the skin affords your home when you use it.

African zebras are generally large animals. Unlike the traditional jackal or any other wild animals skin that you might have access to, the zebra is a magnificent 9 feet long and 5 feet in width. The big size makes the skin very suitable for floor mats. You should comfortably use the mat to cover the sitting area in your living room. If you choose to use the zebra skin rugs as wall hangings, then size will be a big plus for you. You can actually hung the skin on one wall and have the whole room transformed.

The zebra skins can be felted. Felting means that the hair on the skin are intertwined and firmly sewn to the skin with a felt backing. This ensures that the skin stays that way for a long time. The felting of the zebra skin helps add weight on it such that it lasts longer if you decide to use it as a mat. The felting of the skin also helps the skin to be used on literally anything you can think of. Whether you want to use the skin for upholstery, mats, wall hangings or ornaments, it will comfortably help you achieve what you want.
