Crest Lehlako Red Heritage Blanket
Crest was originally designed by the Shrubsole brothers for Wormald & Walker in the 1940s. A prime example of how the meanings and significance of the Basotho Heritage Blankets have evolved over time, this design depicts the Prince of Wales Feathers but to the Basotho it has come to represent the Lehlako, or wheat sheaf , symbolizing the staff of life.
