Animal Prints A Natural History
If you google the history of animal prints you get some interesting results starting with fashion of the 1930’s (not quite google) it goes back much further. The wearing and decorating with animal skins comes from Africa and her people. In fact all people around the world used and wore skins from their regions for their survival. Since we were born naked I think it was the God's idea to make us humble and to respect the more powerful animals we relied upon. Kings, Queens, Warriors adorned themselves in the skins to invoke the power of that animal into themselves. Today we have no reason to hunt or kill wild animals but we still appreciate their beauty and the power they display.
