Giraffe Cushions and Cushion Covers
Giraffes certainly stand out from the crowd; with their vast necks and 6-feet long legs, they're the tallest living land mammals in the world. So tall, in fact, that they can run as fast as 35mph. It's no wonder they're known in Arabic as zarafa, or "fast walkers". Another fun fact about giraffes is that a group of them is known as a tower—they sure live up to that name! So pile up your home pillow collection with some colourful giraffe cushions, from quirky portraits to dreamy graphic designs.
Their neck of the woods
Featuring in famous films from "The Lion King" to "Madagascar", giraffes are some of the most iconic creatures on the African continent. Roaming freely across the savannah, they get most of their nutrients from the succulent Acacia tree. They eat so many juicy leaves that they can even go a few days without water! While munching among the treetops, giraffes regularly cross paths with other animals like branch-swinging primates—so grab some monkey cushions in addition to giraffe pillows, and turn your décor into a real safari. Tarzan would be proud!
A step back in time
The fluttering eyelashes, elegant slenderness and beautiful coating of giraffes are not only a source of inspiration in contemporary fashion and design—they've been appreciated since time immemorial by numerous different societies. For example, the Ancient Greeks gave giraffes their now-scientific name, Giraffa camelopardalis, with reference to their distinctive camel-shape and leopard-like pattern. Meanwhile, the Egyptians created a hieroglyph in the shape of a giraffe—alongside other continental animals. All the more reason, therefore, to add some tigers and lions to your giraffe cushion collection!
