African Springbok skin cushion

Size: 40cm x 40cm (L x W)

A beautiful African handcrafted Springbok hide cushion

Genuine African Springbuck skin cushion from South Africa with zipper for inserting stuffing.

The Springbuck roams in most South African game reserves and is found mainly in Southern Africa. African Springbuck hides are obtained during the culling season in South Africa and Namibia and all Springbuck pelt/skin are CITIES approved to ensure that there has been no illegal culling or poaching of these pelts. The Springbuck is known as Springbok in South Africa. We are registered with KZN Wildlife in South Africa and are an approved to sell hide products such as these Springbok cushions.

Springboks are reddish brown to chocolate brown in colour with a cream underside. They have a white stripe called a crest that runs from the small of their back to the base of their tail. Springbok hide is extremely durable and unique in its design with a white spine which, as the leather softens, begins to stand on end.

- As each Springbok hide is unique, the shades and patterns on each cushion will vary.
- These gorgeous cushions are tanned in South Africa's most reputable tannery and selected for their quality, softness and shine.
- Spot clean with warm water and mild soap. Allow to dry naturally.

Facts about this animal

The Springbok is one of South Africa - s most successful game farm animals to breed.

There are some Springbok that are totally black or totally white. The value of these animals is quite substantial in the private market for trophy hunting.

Traditionally Springbok is one of the top 5 most favorite antelope species hunted by local hunters and is sought after for the tender and tasteful meat as well as for their biltong.

When disturbed, Springbok commence running and bound and leap (repeatedly) into the air with stiff extended legs, with the males or rams raising the hairs of the dorsal crest extending from the back to the tail (the rams). These bounds may reach 2 to 3 meters and this leaping is known as - pronking - . This - pronking - could also be seen when the rams are rutting and defending their territories and female herds against other rams with the intention to impress the females or ewes.
