Creative things you can do with Shweshwe

Shweshwe design is so broad due to Shweshwe being such a versatile fabric, which is probably why it is so popular!

While it was once only printed in blue on white, now the colours have exploded and so have the designs. The print can even be politicized, with people wearing their shweshwe “colors” with pride.

And what used to be just for dresses – and very understated ones at that – is now finding its way into an ever-widening circle of products. The motto today is: If you want it colourful, do it in shweshwe.

So now, if you’re looking for some shweshwe design inspiration, here are a few of the many out there to choose from:
