Material of the wooden zebra
The wooden zebra is made of 6 mm thick poplar wooden sheet material. We always work excusively with wood that has the PEFC certification. This means that the wood used is harvested from a sustainably managed forest.
Colours of the zebra
The wooden zebra is painted in black and white. The wooden back panel is painted white, and the cutout zebralines are painted black. These two layers together make the distinct zebra pattern. Although you would expect that the black and white stripes would make the zebra stand out between the green and brown colours of the African savannah, the opposite is true. The stripes are used to cammouflage eachother from predators. After all, when a whole group of zebras huddle close to eachother, it is very difficult for a predator to pick out one prey out of the curtain of stripes.
