Cute Handmade Giraffe Bookmark - FREE* Shipping till Christmas !

I was on a short break and am back with this new design - Cute Giraffe bookmark. The cute animal-themed corner bookmarks that I had started with received such demand that I thought of creating new designs in the same range. 

My inspiration for making this Giraffe design comes from the famous giraffe of Paris, Zarafa. Zarafa was the first Giraffe to set foot on the French soil and was sent from what is now Southern Sudan, as a gift by the then Ottoman viceroy of Egypt, Muhammad Ali to King Charles X of France. 

Zarafa became the darling of Paris and was referred to as the “le bel animal du roi” meaning“the beautiful animal of the King".Poets wrote poems and songs about her, musicians composed music inspired by her, artists made sketches and portraits of her and she became thus the subject of high fashion for a brief period of time.

Zarafa's story became the subject of Nancy Milton's book for children The Giraffe that Walked to Paris and this book is on my wishlist. I hope I get to read this book someday and if I do, I'll surely post a review on my blog

So coming back to the Giraffe bookmarks, these are priced at INR 60 and can be ordered from my store on Ezebee by clicking on the link below or the SHOP tab on this blog.

Buy the Cute Giraffe Bookmark !

If you live in Hyderabad, Kozhikode or Thrissur, consider yourself lucky, for I'm offering free shipping to these locations because it's Christmas! So hurry, place your order before stocks run out.

*FREE shipping to Hyderabad, Kozhikode and Thrissur till Christmas or till stocks last.
