What is Shweshwe?

It is a printed dyed cotton fabric widely used for traditional South African clothing.[2][3] Originally dyed indigo, the fabric is manufactured in a variety of colours and printing designs characterised by intricate geometric patterns.[4][5][6] Due to its timeless popularity, it has been described as the denim,[6] or tartan, of South Africa.[7]

The local name is derived from the fabric’s association with Lesotho‘s King Moshoeshoe I,[8][9] also spelled “Moshweshwe”.

It is also known as sejeremane in Sotho,[10] and ujamani in Xhosa, after 19th century German and Swiss settlers who imported the blaudruck (“blue print”) fabric for their clothing and helped entrench it in South African culture.[6][8][11][12]

Locally manufactured in South Africa. These will make wonderful one of a kind gifts for conferences or events where you have international travellers. These will easily fit into their suitcase as they are light and compact.
