The strikingly striped zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) comes from the African rainforests of Cameroon and Gabon, where it grows into large trees up to about 40 m high and about 1.5 m in diameter. The wood is uniquely beautifully striped and so striking that it is immediately recognizable among many other types of wood. On a light yellow background, very parallel, sharply defined dark brown veins are as if drawn in, the thought of a zebra with the strong contrasts is obvious. The wood is very hard, relatively dense and heavy and highly sought after for luxury projects. Demand for this wood has grown steadily over the past 20 years due to its uniquely beautiful appearance.
