Inspired by the unique tradition and style of Ndebele house painting, this vibrant and beautifully patterned throw is bursting with iconic Ndebele style. The patterns and expressive symbols created on the walls of the houses serve as a form of communication between the different groups of the Ndebele people originating from the north-eastern parts of South Africa and into the southern parts of Zimbabwe.
