About Shweshwe Fabric:
Shweshwe is manufactured with an acid discharge and unique printing technique on pure cotton calico. Da Gama Textiles still produces the original Shweshwe at the Zwelitsha factory in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. The process is still done traditionally whereby a weak acid solution is fed onto the fabric, bleaching out the distinctive intricate white designs.
This fabric has typically been use traditional in rural areas, but now has become widely fashionable in South Africa and around the world.
