These blankets have a deep cultural significance and history. The world renowned Basotho tribal blankets distinguish this nation from others by the way in which the blankets are worn as part of their everyday life. The designs have been developed over many years with the blessing of the Lesotho Royal Family.
When worn in the traditional manner, the pin-stripe runs vertically symbolising growth.
The more prestigious Seanamarena design features more corncobs than the everyday wearing blankets, the Sefate and Morena.
