Did You Know?
Originally, Shwe Shwe fabric was woven in India and printed primarily in England (Manchester) and Germany for export to South Africa. Today, it is made exclusively in South Africa by Da Gama Textiles. The patterns on the cloth are made by acid etching the fabric (known as the "discharge method") using huge copper rollers. Traditionally always indigo blue, there is now a huge choice of modern colours available!
Some people associate the name ‘Shwe Shwe’ with the rustling of this heavily-starched fabric. Others say it was named after a King called Moshoeshoe, who was given some of this cloth by French missionaries in the 1840s.
