The Lesotho ceremonial blankets have a deep cultural significance. In 1860 a blanket was presented to the then King, King Moshoeshoe I. The blanket has become part of not only their everyday life but as a status symbol. The pin stripe was originally a weaving fault and has become a unique part of the design and dictates how the blanket is worn. When worn in the traditional manner, the pin-stripe runs vertically symbolising growth.
