Beware! The wearing of this scarf may lure lovers from far and wide!
It seems to be a timeless pattern in the grasslands of East Africa. As humans we have borrowed the patterns of many of our animal friends.
Some believe there is a certain pheromone element associated with the wearing animal prints, a mating call triggering a response. In the wild a zebra or indeed a ram will respond to pheromones by curling back its upper lips exposing its front teeth, inhaling with the nostrils flared, the neck stretched and the head held high in the air. This is known as the ’Flehman response’.
If you happen to be walking down the street wearing this scarf and someone arches their neck, flares their nostrils and exposes their teeth at you..you can be fairly sure they think you’re hot!
