Authentic Shweshwe is manufactured by Da Gama Textiles in King Wiliams town (Eastern Cape).
Da Gama Textiles has been producing authentic Shweshwe since 1946, providing employment and training for people in the region.
I LOVE the fact that Shweshwe is 100% produced in South Africa by local workers.
Shweshwe is strong and durable, bright (nice to look at) and doesn’t fade as quickly as other kinds of cotton.
The fabrics long history also tells us the story of South Africas rich cultural heritage which makes it even more SPECIAL.
Shweshwe is recognized as South Africas official fabric, its great for adults and kids.
