The name “Zebrawood” comes from the distinctive striped appearance of the wood, resembling the stripes of a zebra. The heartwood of Zebrawood ranges in color from light golden yellow to a darker golden brown, with prominent dark brown or black stripes. The contrast between the light and dark colors creates a visually appealing appearance. The sapwood is usually pale yellow.

The tree’s exotic and striking grain pattern makes it highly sought after for a range of applications, including furniture making, cabinetry, flooring, and specialty items. Its origins in West Africa contribute to its appeal as a distinctive and unique hardwood choice in the world of woodworking.
