Looking for special Zebra Bedding


Maybe I'm being upfront here and not entirely in the right spot for my questions but will ask them anyway. :-)

I run a small blog on zebra prints and since the article mentioned accessories and decorative items I was wondering if they're 'into zebra prints' as well. The thing is that most of the stuff out there, although it's great zebra print stuff, is rather the same, not refreshing or special at all.

Hand made items are special, fair trade even better. You can check our current selection here: Zebra Bedding
