El Morocco Matchbook Magnet (MM45)
This is just an awesome zebra print cover. People love it. Where I live, in Tanzania, you get to see zebra a lot on safari. What maybe people don’t know is how often zebra cuddle one another. You frequently will see them resting their heads upon one another’s necks or backs. It’s terribly sweet and they’re such handsome beasts.
This club opened in the 30’s as a speakeasy. Because of the zebra striped banquettes, if a celebrity was photographed at the club, everyone knew where they were. It was an incredibly famous place to hang out during the café society years. It was so popular Woody Allen made a film that referenced the club.
I think the popularity of the cover is in part due to the enchanting idea of Morocco. We spent a few weeks hiking outside of Marrakech and Morocco is every bit as romantic and sexy as I expected. The bazaars are fabulous, but way back in the smaller villages people mostly ride on donkeys and it’s just so, so breathtakingly beautiful.
The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)
All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding. The surface is textured, so it does not scratch. We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China. It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.
Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.
SIZE: This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)
PACKAGING: This magnet is packaged in a hard plastic container for retail sale, then we place it into the mailer.
It ships in a hand addressed, postage stamped padded mailer.
