I have always thought of this print as a leopard print and even saw someone describe it as a giraffe print (yes I know, a giraffe print doesn’t spring to mind so quickly. I had to Google to remind myself of the pattern). African prints, over time acquire different names in different African countries and markets. This one is known as Household Gravel or Family Gravel. This is said to represent the gravel around a house. As gravel is also sharp it is said to describe the immediate family. It’s sometimes sharp and can cut deeply. This is because those closest to us can cause us the most pain. Interesting! Check out the selection we currently have below. Just click on the images to see more of the fabric.
