COLOR & APPEARANCE

Native to West Africa, zebrawood offers a striking grain contrast and exceptional finish. Although the growth rings are very pronounced, the wood occurs naturally with both large grain and fine grain patterns. Zebrawood is considered a luxury hardwood and is most commonly used in veneer application. BOBO BIRD uses only whole wood stock to create our Zebrawood watches.
