Shweshwe is a celebration of life & all the beautiful things in it. As a mom and daughter team, we create products for your kitchen, table & little ones from the uniquely South African fabric called shwe-shwe.
isiShweshwe - the fabric that we use in all our products has a long and complex history. Its roots probably extend as far back as early Arab and Phonecian trade along the eastern seaboard before 2400BC. The arrival of the indigo cloth in South African emerged after the 1652 establishment of a seaport at the Cape of Good Hope. In the early 1840s French missionaries presented King Moshoeshoe I with a gift of indigo printed cloth, establishing a cloth preference that grew during the 19th century, and still prevails today, hence the term shoeshoe or isi-shweshwe.
Today, there is only one manufacturer in the world of the authentic cloth using the traditional method whereby fabric is fed through copper rollers which have patterns etched on the surface, allowing a weak acid solution to be fed into the fabric, bleaching out the distinctive white designs.
You can easily establish the fabric’s authenticity by touch, smell and taste to ensure that you are purchasing the genuine fabric and not reproduction or fake cloth.
We proudly only use the 100% cotton Shweshwe in all our designs as a tribute to our beautiful country - which like the fabric - has a long and complex history but is beautiful and unique all the same.
