About

CITES legal . Approximately 64 skin Colobus fur rug . This rug represents the largest size these rugs were made in Africa . In 1974 Cites forbade the import of the Colobus Monkey as they were considered NT near threatened to VU , vulnerable. if they had not forbidden import , the species very probably may have become EN endagered . They were used massively by european and american designers for high fashion women's clothing from 1920 to the 1970's . The USA and the remainder of the western nations stopped their import in 1974 and the species is no longer at risk. This rug was purchased by my dad in Kenya , where he traveled for work in 1969 , before the law was created . Since then the 3 he purchased were , for my lifetime kept in climate controlled storage . Before this , my mother had this one in the Foyer . The fur is long and full and lustrous in good condition , whereas the skins are fragile and there are places where the seams have split . It should be lined , and put in a non traffic area . Please note that image 13 shows 3 rugs , the smallest of which is now sold. They go well with contemporary , Mid century modern , and most antique styles , especially colonial british styles. We cannot ship these outside of the USA.
