The MapaWall Zebrano edition is topped with the finest Zebrano wood. This veneer type is known for its dark horizontal stripes that are reminiscent of a zebra. To no one’s surprise, zebrano is colloquially known as Zebra wood.
Because of its characteristic striped design, zebrano wood is often used in modern interiors to emphasize the contrast of stylistic minimalistic furniture and natural products.
Zebrano wood comes from several tree species whose images you will find below. The wood often comes is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks. Depending on how the wood is cut, the stripes can be wavy or more uniformly horizontal. With roots in Central America, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific, Zebrano is considered a classy and exclusive wood.
Zebrano trees are listed as very vulnerable due to a population reduction over the last decades. That’s one of the reasons why we (over)compensate for our use of the veneer and wood by donating a minimum of $10 to the Nature Conservancy each time we sell one of our MapaWall. We offer you the chance to donate as well, with our added guarantee that we will top off any donation you give.
