FABRICS FROM SOUTH AFRICA
We recognize that when it comes to African textiles, West African fabrics are the most popular on the global market. We are excited to share our growing collection of authentic fabric from South Africa. Shweshwe is a colorful cotton fabric that features intricate floral, stripe, and geometric designs.
Shweshwe is still manufactured traditionally where cotton is fed through copper rollers and a weak acid solution is used to bleach out the designs. Authentic Shweshwe contains a Three Cats® logo on the back.
The fabric is commonly used for traditional weddings, everyday fashion, work wear, accessories, quilting, and home decor.
