Zebrawood: exotic & bold
Zebrawood is a unique and incredibly beautiful type of wood that has gained enormous popularity in recent years. Dark brown veins on a light core, hence the very appropriate name: Zebrawood. It comes from the tropical rainforests in West Africa. At Holzkern, we only use FSC-certified wood to create our unique accessories.
What we love about zebrawood
In addition to its unique look, this hardwood also has great texture. Its density and elasticity make it a striking material for making accessories. On top of that, it’s highly weather and water-resistant.
History and symbolism
Zebrawood was used by ancient Egyptians for making furniture and decorative objects. In the 2000s, it was widely used in car interior designs and guitars.
In many cultures, zebrawood represents durability, harmony and strength. It’s also associated with change and progress.
