Another marvel of nature’s artistry. This black and white nguni cowhide rug is nearly 2m x 2m of dazzling silvery white against black as black markings.
Nguni cattle are special to Southern Africa. The breed is a natural hybrid of Indian and European breeds that has been allowed to occur over thousands of years. This ‘natural selection’ process has resulted in beautiful, unique and hardy cattle that are still tended to by herd boys on hillsides. These hides have been produced as a bi-product to the beef industry to create gorgeous rugs for your home.
Herd of Ubuntu supports rhino conservation projects and $50 from the sale of this hide will go towards measures to help prevent rhino poaching in South Africa.
