My Love Affair with a Zebra

I have spent countless hours searching for zebra.  Black Zebra, White Stripes.  The elusive Brown Zebra, White Stripes.  Where to find them?  What is their Grade?  How are they treated?  How are the hides handled? The search begins with the hide.

Found the hides, check.  Next step - send hides to trusted upholsterer.  I have a single source in NYC that I trust to work with hides.
