Nguni hides are highly functional and are mostly used as "rugs" in homes and furniture coverings as they are both decorative and warm.
Cattle are a strong feature in zulu culture and considered a measurement of wealth: the more cattle a man owns, the wealthier he is considered. The Nguni Cow breed are the traditional breed of the Zulu nation and have strong associations both in name and in physical attributes to their surroundings on the plains of Kwazulu-Natal and Zululand. These cattle are amongst some of the toughest breeds, being able to survive extremes in climate as well as, at times, very limited and tough grass.
PRODUCT SIZES These skins are roughly 2m x 1.5m however the initial size of the animal varies so this is not exact but rather a good indication.
