Raising Rhino Rands
Raising Rhino Hands is an inspiring non-profit organisation who uses scrap shweshwe and other materials to raise funds for Rhino Orphanages and Veterinary Organisations in South Africa! They help with the day to day costs of rescuing, helping, protecting and rehabilitating our rhinos.
Shweshwe and Fashion
From traditional clothes to street wear to haute couture: isiShweshwe's material transition from the realm of workwear to sought-after fashion was unexpected but instant.
Appearing first on the runways in South Africa, isiShweshwe soon gathered global attention, thanks to a number of local designers who reflect the complex relationship between fashion and identity.
